Youth to Power

posted by on March 10 at 13:55 PM

Tomorrow night at Town Hall, our own Eli Sanders will interview Michael Connery, an author and blogger for and

Connery got sucked down the net-politics hole by the Dean campaign and the thesis of his latest book, Youth to Power: How Today’s Young Voters Are Building Tomorrow’s Progressive Majority, is in the title.

Sanders and Connery will discuss the “millennial” generation (first-time voters) and how they’re the future of the Democratic party and how their influence may or may not arrive in time to tilt this presidential election.

The discussion begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets are five dollars.

(And, while you’re at it, read Sanders’s latest feature, “Washington State as Prologue: Washington State Is Already Living a Democratic Dream, and It’s Not So Dreamy,” about how our governor (the only female governor in the U.S. working with a democratic legislature) is “a study in cautiousness.”)

Hope you talk about how they never seem to show up to vote in the General Election (see 2004 as an example)
