I'm too young to understand the full context of the emotional side of the argument. Logically, I understand that Ayers and his brethren did horrible things in the 60s. I also know that they were a part of a much larger argument that should no longer be taking place. One of the things that turned me onto Obama was this end of the Baby Boomers bullshit. I was hoping it was at least over here. I guess not.
