  •  Yeah Jason Kidd is 40 still in the NBA, Go NYK (0+ / 0-)

    But hes a back up, and he doesnt start.

    And a baseball game is 9 innings, Page pitched a 1/3rd of a game, and someone had to come in and finish the job.

    Is that the analogy you wanted, that Hillary could start the job but would need to be replaced..... that Hillary wont be able to go the distance.

    •  Not quite.. (0+ / 0-)

      Well, I don't count on Hillary wiffing a side.  

      Though we've had a 101 run a marathon:

      But if you want more fitting, non-athletes who performed late into life, then we have to remember the realities of both the office and what we are asking them to do.  I seriously doubt Hillary is going to be running any marathons, etc.  Should she pick a youthful VP if she gets the nom?  Yes, I think so.   But being in mid-60s right now isn't quite the same thing as being tied to a wheelchair unable to perform ;)

      •  Americans dont elect presidents that old (0+ / 0-)

        Reagan was the outlier.

        Millennials are a larger and larger voting block.
