4. Obama has already created a generation of Democrats

One thing we know (and Howard Dean reminded us of this in 2008): once younger people have begun to vote for a party several times, they usually stay attached to that party for their lifetimes.

Obama's successful efforts to engage a grassroots cohort of younger voters will have a lasting effect for a generation or so, at least. Even a moderated Republican Party will have problems peeling off enough of these newer Democratic voters to buy into a fiscal conservative outlook.

My two cents.
