ABSTRACT
This article presents the twenty-something author's views on why many young voters are supporting Senator Barack Obama over Senator Hillary Clinton in the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign. The author says that many of her cohorts support Obama due to the ease and excitement of his campaign. She also reflects on why a woman president doesn't seem revolutionary to many women in their twenties, attributing it to women's already prominent role in higher-education and jobs.
