    that people just won't care as much about posts made decades earlier, and I think that this will be broadly true for a majority of voters.

    At the same time though, I'm concerned that enough people (combined with a sufficiently prurient media) are interested in the more gossipy side of public life that there will still be an incentive for people to dredge up old comments/images and use them against their opponents, even if they won't actually swing many votes. (Hypocrisy didn't exactly stop Republicans from complaining about Clinton's sex life.)

    Ultimately I think the face of future campaigning is really dependent on what the media looks like in the next 20-40 years, and I don't think I can predict that very well.
