I’m so done with septuagenarians. All of them.
This is a HUGE problem for me with all the front-runners - both in 2016 and 2020. When you're 70+ years old, sure you can still be mentally and physically fit. But it's such an impossibly slippery slope at that age. Even a healthy 70 year old in retirement living in the lap of luxury without a care in the world can be fine one day and head down hill QUICKLY. Now put the stress (physical and mental) of being president and that slope gets A LOT more steep. 70+ year olds just are not cut out for the job. Even Obama who was "young" when he entered, aged considerably.

Trump is old. Biden is old. Hillary is old. Sanders is old. Warren is old. Why is America the only world leader that puts the elderly up for (and winning) elections?

I don't get how Donald Trump was trying to find out or weed out corruption in Ukraine. How many of his "corrupt"administration officials were found guilty and jailed? Who is he kidding? Is the American people supposed to believe that? Trump is hell bent on derailing Biden's campaign so liar and thief Trump can remain President. Why can't people see it through the fine lines? If Biden is corrupt then Trump is corrupt by a factor of 10 or more. Trump crimes morphs Biden. He is trying to get the leverage because he is in the hot seat and Biden is the candidate that can beat him. We know all of this. Nothing new here.

Krystal Ball tends to put out pretty sensationalist headlines, despite constantly decrying the mainstream media for doing the same. She makes some good points sometimes, but is blatantly pro Sanders and pro Gabbard.

... Biden who a lot of people have firm favorable impressions of.
Yeah that's like someone being mean to your harmless senile grandpa who's just yelling at the pigeons pooping on the car he hasn't been allowed to drive for 8 years due to dementia.

What the hell type of mentality does it take to watch that video and then give it the time of day for "others to discuss"?
What type of idiot does it take to watch that video and then compare it to a meltdown?

Discourse has always been driven to BS and mob mentality shitheads in this country but some of you people need to take a break from engaging with them.
This video and Ball's comment are not worthy of discussion. They are for idiots to drive up ad revenue.
Cuz that is all they are good for. Ad revenue and clicks.

Trump handily got rid of all the big name candidates in the debates, Bush, etc. I believe he will turn Biden into a stammering, stuttering pile of goo. He'll bring down Sanders and Warren, just on attacking their socialist positions, not to mention Bernie's lack of accomplishments in general and Warren's false info about herself, like being Native American. There is plenty he will attack.

Old people vote more than young people?

First off, Trump has already eluded that he's going to skip the debates. If he does participate, he hardly has the brain power and "best words" to bring down a rock, let alone turn Biden into a "stammering, stuttering pile of goo" And trust me, I no fan of Biden by any means. I'm not sure what world you're living in.

He can attack all those thing he wants on Sanders and Warren and they have a million more things to attack him on.

He's living in the world where "No puppet, no puppet, you're the puppet" is masterfully besting your debate opponent.

How does he get to attack Warren on her heritage without bringing into question his whole life story being a fraud? He isn’t a self-made billionaire.

They say that Washington is no place to raise a family or for children. Uncle Joe has been in DC as a member of senate since the early 70's.

The only thing I'm worried about with Biden beating Trump is how they will do on stage together. Biden just doesn't seem to be that quick when he isn't handed a script and forced to stay in line. Trump will be the typical school yard bully against Biden if they end up going head to head.

Those three just have too much baggage. And I don't just mean under their eyes. I'm afraid that if they don't find a viable candidate soon the Shrew is gonna jump in and then we all lose. Again.

I don't care much for Bloomie either, but he may be the only one cunning enough to take the US out of the Orange Glow.
