    and they looked old.

    Romney doesnt have that problem -looks young even though he is 60.

    Bush Sr looked old compared to Clinton.

    Reagan was old (but looked at least 10 years younger than his age) - but not that much older than Carter or Mondale.

    Age matters.

    Romney isn't necessarily going to be the candidate.

    But in reality McCain and Dole lost because they ran as moderates and not conservatives.

    McCain burried his ass when he teamed up with what's-her-name.
    End of that story.

    McCain lost because he is a fool. Too much video of him saying such nonsense as "Iran was training al Qaeda" and "Women should pay for birth control because it's a lifestyle choice, but lackaboner is a "medical condition" so Viagra should be free.
    The worst was when he said if you give veterans too many benefits, they won't stay in the military. Be trapped in the military you mean.

    He's a fool. Worse, one of the Keating 5.

    Damn, Obama will beat Ron Paul because Ron is old? Well I guess there had to be a reason people wouldn't vote for Paul.

    Great theory. That would explain how Bush '41 beat a younger Dukakis in 1988, Reagan beat a younger Mondale in 1984 and a younger Carter in 1980...............oops, never mind. :cuckoo:

    Let him die? That seems to be a pretty good reason to me.

    FDR won his 4th term as a zombie in a wheel chair and possibly brain damaged by a series of strokes. Americans elected him because the media supported him and only media information available at the time was part of the administration.
