The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate must mobilize the new American majority. If they do, they won't need to carry blue-collar white men to win. In 2012, Obama got the votes of only 35 percent of white men.
Research shows that campaigns that directly contact young people boost youth turnout. Knocking on young people's doors to talk about an election increases their turnout by about 25 percent.
My generation hasn't left the world in such great shape, though not for lack of trying. So I'm asking my fellow baby boomer idealists to understand millennials' frustration, to tap into their incredible energy and to recognize their passion and altruism.

Ken Russell is the new City of Miami District 2 Commissioner. It's the end of the Sarnoff era.
