Who is electable? (Part 1)

In the past the 10 oldest presidents were:

Ronald Reagan: 69 years old.

William Henry Harrison:68 years old.

James Buchanan: 65 years old.

George H.W. Bush: 64 years old.

Zachary Taylor: 64 years old.

Dwight D. Eisenhower: 62 years old.

Andrew Jackson: 61 years old.

John Adams: 61 years old.

Reagan as you know suffered early Alzheimer’s disease at the end of his presidency. Harrison died from pneumonia contracted it is thought at his inauguration. And Buchanan was probably the worst president before the current one.

What’s the point of this? The lead republican for 2020 was elected at age 70 and be 74 years at the time of the next election.. Biden will be 78, Sanders will be 79, Clinton will be 73, Warren will be 71.

Our experience with the elderly presidents has been at best mediocre and at worst a disaster. We can and must do better.
