How Millennial Leaders Will Change America

Love ’em or hate ’em, this much is true: one day soon, millennials will rule America. This is neither wish nor warning but fact, rooted in the physics of time and the biology of human cells.

They outnumber Gen X (born 1965–1980) and will soon outnumber baby boomers (born 1946–1964) among American voters. Their startups have revolutionized the economy, their tastes hav...

Here was a candidate who looked like a Golf Channel pundit, the successor to a West Coast political dynasty, who took charge of a Republican str...
