Actually, yes. I have a Boomer friend (mid-60’s) lawyer who, after leaving a company, wangled an unpaid fellowship with the State Dept last year. He had been in the FCC bureaucracy in the 1970’s and 80’s, and was a standard limousine liberal. After a year in Obama’s DC he came back to California very disillusioned. He didn’t have anything bad to say about Obama per se, but said that the whole crowd of 20- and 30-somethings that Obama brought with him and put into positions in the bureaucracy were frighteningly incompetent and self-centered. Said they were open about wanting to make lots of changes to American in their 3-4 years in gov’t, then use their influence to land a well-paying corporate job and cash in. They were making terrible decisions and no one cared. My friend is a liberal and blind to many aspects of reality, but he’s old enough to remember that it didn’t used to be this way and he really worries for the future. We’re close enough friends to where I don’t say “I told you so” - he knows without being told.
