GOSH, WOULDN'T YOU THINK...:

Obama's senior difficulty (DAVID PAUL KUHN | 4/27/08, Politico)

Barack Obama’s difficulty attracting older voters now far exceeds Hillary Rodham Clinton’s own weaknesses with youth.

Repeatedly during the tight race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Obama, who’s been defined in part by his popularity among young voters, has seen that strength undercut by his failings with seniors.

In the Pennsylvania and Ohio primaries, Obama lost older whites by 30 percentage points, while Clinton split white voters under age 30 in both critical contests. Obama’s senior problem is even greater among Hispanics. The Illinois senator lost older Latinos by 40 to 60 percentage points in Texas, New Mexico and California.


...that Seniors would love those YouTube videos with hip-hoppers worshiping him?

You mean the Leahy, McGovern, and Kennedy endorsements don't count with seniors?

He should get Byrd to do an ad as quickly as possible (like before Byrd kicks the bucket).
