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.I’m so done with septuagenarians. All of them.
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?
