    Oprah Winfrey. Bill Clinton. George Clooney. Each has reached a level of success that few will ever know. 

    Age wise, however, they are faces in a very large crowd — a crowd called the baby boom generation. Made up of around 75 million people born between 1946 and 1964, baby boomers in America are in nearly a dead heat with the millennial generation (ages 18-34) to claim the title of largest living generation in the U.S., according to the Pew Research Center.
