Much was made of Reagan being old, taking the office at around 70 years old.
Now, the democrats are lining up an entire field of seniors. 2 of the 3 declared candidates are senior citizens, and the 2 people most likely to jump into the race (Biden and Webb) are 72 and 70, respectively. Taking a look at the republican candidates is almost refreshing in comparison.
What do you think is up with that? Why have the democrats become the party of tired old people?
Lincoln Chafee may run, he is comparatively young at 62…it will be up to him and O’Malley to add some much needed vitality to the tired old democrats.
