  •  Dems dont elect old POTUS (0+ / 0-)

    Dems vote for people in their 40's or 50's.

    The GOP votes for people that are generally 20 years older.

    IIRC Woodrow Wilson was the oldest to win taking office in 1913 at age 57.

    SO if Hillary wins she'll be the oldest DEM POTUS since Andrew Jackson was sworn in in 1829, and 9 years older than Jackson....but she'll also be the first woman POTUS.

    Quite an accomplishment and highly unlikely.
