  •  Not really a good argument for Hillary (5+ / 0-)

    Ronald Reagan clearly WAS too old to be president, as evidenced by his second-term dementia.

    Everyone ages differently, but everyone ages.  Hillary's probably fine, but shouting that "Reagan was 69!!" is not an argument in Hillary's favor.

    There are plenty of of the examples that actually support the contention that Hillary's not too old (Dole, McCain, et al), but, in the end, she herself will have to just demonstrate it, as I'm confident she will.

    •  John McCain was 72 on Election night 2008 (1+ / 0-)

      He would have been 80 if re-elected.

      He also spent five years in the Hanoi Hilton, was beaten repeatedly and broken both physically and mentally.  

      Any time the GOP make a point about Hillary's age they should be reminded that they voted for McCain to be president when he was 3 years older and had been through far more trauma.  

      You don't have to use Reagan and his Alzheimer.  The fact is the GOP have no qualms about voting for senile old bats.  They're trying to make Hillary to be one too but we all know she's younger and sharper than Bob Dole was in 1996 when he was 73.  Mitt Romney at 65 or George HW Bush at 64 were no spring chickens either.
