Let's say someone was 12 in 2005, the year of the first Twilight
book's publication. That person would be 17 today, and, in 2012, will be old enough to vote for the first time in a presidential election. It seems inevitable, really, that supporters of Obama and—Romney? Let's say Romney, to be safe—will spend much of the run-up to the election in t-shirts reading "Team Barack" and "Team Mitt."
On a possibly related note, I've barely been out of college longer than I was in it and the Beloit Mindset List is already making me feel old.
