    I don't think of her as being that old.  She in her sixties?

    And mental condition?  I don't think she's unstable.  I think she's pretty stable.

    This is pure BS, and stupid David Gregory fell for it.

    What the really important question of the day is, who will run in 2024? /snark

    •  She'd be 70 in the first year of her first term. (2+ / 0-)

      No issue on mental condition, I believe, she's "sharp as a tack".

      But as a general rule, I think 70 is too old for anyone to begin a presidency (or take a leadership position) of anything important. A very high and sustained energy level is required of the President of the United States. People age quickly in that office and as age advances, one's vulnerability is greater.

      Yes, we all know very energetic, able, perky 70 year olds. Few of them have been President. Yes, the President has a host of very qualified aides and advisors, but we don't elect them.

      Age is a valid concern.

      2014 is HERE. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!

      •  Currently 66 (0+ / 0-)

        She'll be 69 if elected to office.

        Agreed about age.  OTOH, that didn't stop Reagan.

        •  True, Mike, but it should have stopped Reagan! (0+ / 0-)

          HC will be 69 whether she's elected or not, I hope! And 70 during her first year as President.
