    If elected:

    Sanders would be 79 at inauguration.
    Biden would be 78.

    Gabbard would be 39.
    Buttigieg would be 39.

    These 4 are either too old or too young.
    Are you worried about their age?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Bloomberg would be 79 as well.

    If they have a pulse and there's a D behind their name, they're a better alternative than Trump.

    No. I'm only worried about their policies.

    Is your political philosophy - "Hooray for our side"?

    No, because there are such things as VP's.

    That seems to be about the strongest message any of the dem candidates are running on right now. That might be why Trump is going to win again in 2020.

    I am concerned about Biden's age and Bernie's age, but not that of the younger candidates. Having said that, the President is getting up in years as well.

    And Trump will be 74. Not that much younger than Bernie/Biden.

    Trump and Biden appear to be in cognitive decline more so than Bernie.

    ...making either of these two the youngest president in history if elected, and neither has the qualifications of the two who are next closest (TR Roosevelt and John Kennedy).

    Roosevelt and Kennedy were good presidents so you could make an argument that the importance of age is slightly overrated.

    STROM THURMOND SERVED UNTIL HE WAS 100 YEARS OLD. THE LAST BILL HE VOTED ON, HE WAS CONFINED TO A WHEELCHAIR, AND THE OTHER SENATORS HAD TO HOLD HIS HAND UP. HE HAD NO IDEA WHERE HE WAS. IT WAS A VERY SAD THING TO SEE. IT ALSO MADE ME ANGRY.

    ALSO, HOW MANY POLITICIANS GO TO DC WITH UPPER-CLASS INCOMES BUT BECOME MULTI-MILLIONAIRES WITHIN A FEW YEARS? BLAH BLAH BLAH.... YUCK ... I HATE IT!!!!

    Why do you even mention him Melody? We are talking about people less than 80 years old.

    Not worried for one second about the younger two. The Geezers leading both parties scare me.
