Does power skip a generation?

According to thereisnospoon at Daily Kos, Howard Dean said, "This is not an individual effort: this is the handoff between the baby boomers and the millenial generation."

What about generation X, the core of the workforce? Don't we thirteeners get our chance at power? There are tens of millions of voters between the ages of 25 and 45, many of us parents, homeowners, and workers. Ignoring us is not a wise political strategy. Power cannot simply be handed off (like a baton in a relay) from the middle aged to the very young. This race cannot be won without us.
