Reagan shuts down the "age" issue
I put up a card asking if Hillary Clinton, who will be 69 by the time she is able to take the Oath of Office (if elected in 2016) is too old to be President. Ronald Reagan was 69 when first elected, and was reelected at the age of 73, four years later. When his age was brought up as an issue in a debate with candidate Walter Mondale, he shut down the issue with a single well thought out sentence. Check it out.

Well said. I don't think age is an issue. Like he was referencing to, it comes with many things that younger candidates lack. Experience and political ties to name a few.
