"Time for a New Caucus?"

After reading the profiles of the newest members of the General Assembly it occurred to me that the most important characteristic they shared was their youth.  One might hope that a caucus based on a fresh perspective, enthusiasm, optimism and cooperation might be far more productive than one based on traditional views, entrenched positions and predictable philosophy.

I hope that they might work together in a New Caucus, free from the tyranny of authority, before they simply fade into the traditional behavior that has resulted in the stagnation we see all around us.

But maybe it's just me.
