Baby boomers need to release their arthritic fingers from the torch of leadership and pass it off to another generation. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama will have accounted for 24 years of the presidency by 2016, which seems more than sufficient.

Ermmm ... Obama's only 52 -- he was 47 when elected, the 5th youngest person ever to do so. He was born in 1961, which is just 3 years shy of NOT being a boomer by the US Census Bureau's standards.

Teddy Roosevelt was the youngest President at age 42. If we match that with someone today, they will have been born in 1971, which I would argue isn't that much of a generational difference. 42 in 2016 would mean a person born in 1974, ten years into post-boomer-ism and not really young enough to be a child of the latest of Boomers (which to me would be the standard of a fully-next "generation") ...

I'm thinking it's going to be at least another couple Presidential terms before we even get to see viable truly-post-boomer candidates ...
