Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

I swear this is not concern trolling but is anyone else

noticing how old Joe Biden is looking? I love him and would love to vote for him and 100% know he would be so much better than Trump, but last night my husband commented how old he looked in his twitter video and I don't know if its the power of suggestion but that was my first thought seeing him just now.
Maybe it is our own age? My husband and I are late 30s, early 40.

1. He looks young for his age, healthy, in great shape.

 

And he has decades more experience than people your age.

3. Watching his speech, he looks Presidential to me

 

He is old, there's no denying it. But, I haven't seen anything that tells me he's not up for this, and I truly believe he's the only one of the available choices that can repair the damage done bu Trump.

for connecting with people. Anyone who has met him in person ends up being a Joe fan for life (well obviously there are a few exceptions, but I think the photos show otherwise).

12. Wnen you get my age, 82, you never want to look in the mirror

 

in the morning until you have at least washed your face, combed your hair and if a man, shaved. Then and only then you may just squint your eyes, take a quick look and then go about your day secure in the knowledge that you don't look a day over 60.

I was just noticing how many 76'ers there are out there that are still so young at heart, full of energy and doing their thing: Paul McCartney, Harrison Ford, Barbra Streisand, Carole King ...

a couple years back? The energy was astounding. The same with Paul McCartney when he entertained the Obamas in the White House. Some people actually do seem to get better with age.

20. I'm 73 now. I could do a campaign, but I have no interest in it.

 

Joe has been campaigning for many, many years. He knows what it takes. Apparently, he's up for it, so I'm sure he's up to it, as well.

He's not trying to hide his age.

24. When he smiles he looks like a vibrant, healthy, happy, much younger man to me.

 

He's sharp as a tack and I feel relief that he or someone like him among our candidates--who knows how to get things done and espouses our interests and views-- will be taking on Trump in 2020.

26. In my wanderings among the news sites

 

this morning, I was brought up short by a pic of Biden in which he looked very old, kind of gaunt. Not older than his years - which look Im familiar with since Im that age and live in a senior community - but older than widely used photos have been showing.

Joe isn't ego driven so he won't worry much, but expect Mangolini to try to hand a health scare on him as he did to HRC.

30. I noticed...

 

he looked old. Bernie Sanders, also. He looked just as old, if not older... But they spoke very well... I watched both on the news, just now... I also notice that whenever I see Elizabeth Warren (also spoke) and Hillary Clinton (not running, but seems as bright as ever) speaking, they seem very articulate and intelligent. I haven't seen anything too concerning re: age... the older candidates' age is not a concern. I think Trump may have some age-related issues... he seems scattered, a lot, even for someone with bad ideas.

and so see many people from their 50s to their 80s often. Hes very healthy in his look, his movements, his wit and manner. Hes a fairly old but not OLD old guy. For the 70s he kicks ass.

40. Joey Biden looks old because he's in his 7th decade

 

For his age, Biden is in pretty good shape. But yeah, he looks better than a lot of men his age but he's no spring chicken.

Personally? I think he's aged a bit since his son's death. That was a terrible, terrible blow. If one of my kids had died, I'm not sure I'd be standing upright.

So, good one on him!
