1. No, thank you...

 

We already have enough risk with other elderlies. Surely, Vermont has some good Democrats who don't require Depends.

2. Do you know that Bernie Sanders is one year younger than Pat Leahy? Leahy is 81,Sanders is 80

Do you think Sanders and Leahy should retire during the next 2 to 3 years?
If either Leahy or Sanders decide to retire next year, they will replaced by Attorney General TJ Donovan who won 3 statewide elections as VT Attorney General by a 40 percent margin. Donovan is more likely to run for the US Senate than Governor against Phil Scott. Another Democrat that can be the next US Senator from VT is Lt Governor Molly Gray.
