11. So what?

 

The trend has shifted back to old since his presidency. Hillary was a reasonable 69, but Biden and Sanders are almost 80 for shit's sake. How old is too old?

Maybe you should rethink your support for Gov.Inslee since he's also 68 years of age.

Btw, you gave Hillary at 69, a pass. She'd be only good for one term, I'm guessing.

If they become an octogenarian while in office, they're too old. I thought I made that pretty clear.

24. "Too old" for what? Exactly? Winston Churchill was active

 

in politics until age 89. Rep. John Dingell, age 88. Warren Buffett still going Stong at 88, Rupert Murdoch 88.

Does every person's mind suddenly turn to mush when they reach 80?

When Biden becomes president, he will be surrounded by countless advisors and assistants. They will keep track of his monthly, weekly and daily schedule. Biden has a long history in congress and the Executive Branch on which to draw. That is a giant plus. Don't look now, but one only reaches such a level of experience by growing into it. By wisdom and age. Biden has both.

43. Well, first of all, some people actually have.

 

There's been concerns about her health for the last couple of years and not just among asshole right-wingers who want her to die so that they can get another scumbag on the Court.

Secondly, a world of difference between being a SC justice and running an entire country. And it's not without precedent to have justices in their 80s. In many cases, they're actually on the bench until they die rather than retire.

We've NEVER had an 80 year old president before and for good reason. And I find the idea of him serving only one term to be completely unappealing. I want to vote for somebody who can conceivably serve eight years, not just some lame duck seat-warmer.

Biden's generation is being treated so unfairly! They've only been controlling Washington for like 30 goddamn years and have had almost consistent control of the White House since 1993. Isn't the current Congress like the oldest in history?

Yeah, they've really had it rough. Poor them.

And, geez, my candidate is 68 himself and would be the third oldest president ever if he won.

Not necessarily because Biden is my first choice, but since one candidate's supporters decided that first day donations are some sort of flex on all the other candidates, I'll be donating to Biden for just that very reason.

which is yet another good reason - aside from plain "old" ageism - NOT to hold Joe's age against him.

He'll get my General election vote should he get the nom, but other than that. Nope. He's got enough wealthy friends in high and powerful places and apparently all these throngs of rust belt voters so eager to vote for and support him, so they will be more than happy to help him out I'm sure. The fingers will already be on the scale for him in the primary, so he doesn't need folks like me.
