Is Hillary Too Old for the White House?

No she's just incompetent and you know, too short.

No her possible ill heath, poor decisions, track record and time in the failed Obama administration greatly trumps her age in this matter.

That being said she would make a far better president than Obama.

Then again most anyone else would make a far better president than Obama also.

They've chosen a president more than five years older than the previous one only four times, and Clinton is 14 years older than President Barack Obama. In the four elections with a significant age gap between the party nominees since the Cold War ended, the younger candidate has won every time."


"Average out the voters' views, though, and you get a pretty reasonable approach: Advanced age, especially when combined with known health issues, should be a mark against a candidate -- but it shouldn't overwhelm everything else."

Heck no. Women live much longer than men on average. She is just hitting her stride.

No one is talking "average". Yes, women do outlive men, but it also is important to put it all together; outliving and being able to handle the stress are 2 differently things. I am beginning to think she will run, I do not think 69 is too old, but I do think, with her background she is a very old "69" and btw, I am sure you made the comment about just hitting her stride tongue in cheek or I hope you did. No, she has past her peak. She was at her peak in 2008 and will never be the same again. I don't think she will have the support she had then either. That does not mean, I don't think she can get the nomination, I just don't think she will have the same draw as before. the only thing really going for her is her gender.

If she has 90% of her 2008 appeal, that would lead to a resounding EC victory.

1 human gave Obama a good race..just one.. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Stomping the GOP was a walk in the park for Obama.

ANY Democratic nominee is a lock until the GOP stops seeing the Blue Wall as their Krypton.

We'll know in a few years. I'd say by 1/20/2018, 1st anniversary of her tenure, we'd be able to fairly answer your question.
