More now on this group we call the Millennials.
These are the young Americans who came of age during the blossoming of the Internet and during the withering of the economy.

One of the moderators of today's event is Ron Brownstein, editorial director of National Journal, and a former political columnist at the LA Times. He joins the show with more.
