Democratic Primaries Begin: Castro Calls for “New Generation of Leadership”

Former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has demonstrated in the last couple of days that he has all the cliches needed to run for president, saying that he is “going to listen” to average “folks” to take “the temperature” out there on whether he should run, and that Democrats want “a new generation of leadership.

“I believe that in 2020, the American people are going to be looking for a new generation of leadership,” he said in discussing the potential candidacies of Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, who he obviously means represent the last generation of leadership – or even the one before it. Castro is 43, a few decades younger than Sanders and Biden.

Sanders and Biden are from the Pepsi Generation.

Actually, they’re a litte older than the Pepsi generation.

Despite all the coyness, Castro tipped his hand, perhaps more than he intended, saying he has “every interest” in running in 2020.
