Obama: Americans want 'new car smell' in 2016 | Fox News

I actually think there is something to this, and this is an insightful way to put it. As a Republican, I want one of the younger guns such as Susana Martinez, Ted Cruz, Marco Robio, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, or perhaps an old gun with zero experience, namely Ben Carson. I don't want a Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney.

The question is, how to Democrats feel about this, and what does it mean for Hillary Clinton.

Keep in mind that with modern car detailing techniques, we can now reproduce the new car smell in a used car.

I agree with you, I don't think Cruz will do well if he runs. I would love to see someone new.
I'm not convinced Clinton will run, but if she does it wont be the slam dunk liberals think it will be.

Yup, "new car smell", but it will be the same old GM piece of crap or the same old
Ford piece of crap. Two choices.. Burger King or McDonalds.

Volkswagons, Kias, and Toyotas have a new car smell too, Snowball. It ain't just Fords and Chevvies. And don't forget that all those brands have American factories. If cars are a metaphor, so are their factories.

I agree, wutitiz; I think both parties want a sniff of that new car smell right now.

That, in part, is why I have believed for almost 2 years now that Hillary Clinton won't be the Democratic nominee. And Mitt Romney won't be the Republican nominee. The 2016 election will end the 2nd decade of the 21st century; by 2020, there will be adult voters who were born in 2000, and many more who were so young that the 20th century has very little influence on them.

And by 2020, the voters who cling to 20th century ways and thought will largely be in rest homes, or getting ready to retire. The folks who turned 60 in 2008 will be 72. Those who turned 70 in 2008 will be 82. At those ages, about 1/3 of the age 60 group won't live to vote in 2020, and 1/3 of those who turned 70 won't live to vote either. That's the span when people begin dying as a generation.

But if a person make it to 78, the chances of living into their 90s greatly increases.
