  •  In 2016, Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old. (0+ / 0-)

    Joseph Biden will be 74.
    IMHO, they are both too old to be starting a term as President.
    Remember William Henry Harrison - Caught pneumonia at the inaguration. Died shortly afterward.
    Dwight Eisenhower - A stroke and a heart attack while in office.
    Ronald Reagan - Alzheimers while in office.

    That's not to say that elderly people should avoid public office - There are plenty of elderly people in Congress.
    But old age is certainly a disability in a job as strenuous as the Presidency.
    Sorry, human lifespan is what it is.

    Before you accuse me of ageism: I'm a few days older than H. Clinton. I know what I'm talking about here.

    •  Personally (0+ / 0-)

      I would rather it be someone else I'm fed up of dynasty

    •  Those are all men (0+ / 0-)

      Women tend to live longer and retain their cognitive abilities better than men do.

      Not sure why. It could just be because they are more likely to go to the doctor and take better care of themselves.
