This would make her 69 years old on the day of election in 2016. You woud have to be a fool to believe someone this old would make it through two terms, let alone one term, especially with all of the rigors of the presidency.

1)A president needs to be elected before they are 65, no ifs ands or buts.

2)HIllary didnt even have stamina to be the Secretary of State. Electing Hillary would end in disaster, probably hauling her around in a wheel chair

3)Reagan was a freak of nature. And men bodies are different. Men can keep their muscle well into their 70s. Women become more fragile. I could just see secret service bumping into her and she falls down and break a clavicle.

Hillary will have to disclose her medical records during the campaign if she runs. Remember she developed a blood clot in her head during the Benghazi hearings. She was disabled for a pretty good while and her handlers went silent not answering inquiries into her health status. We don't need a president that can easily have a stroke under pressure in office. We need a fit vibrant energetic individual for president with skills at governing and making policy.

Reagan took office when he was 69 as well, and he made it through both terms. Although his last 2-3 years he was a bit out of it.

Her age bothers me because I don't think she can handle the rigors of the job...
That and I think she has health issues...

Reagan was healthy as a horse when he was 69. He used to split firewood at his ranch on his vacations. Hillary can't walk up a flight of stares without getting a blood clot.

to old?

No, age is not really a factor in so far as it is not a direct indication of health.

HEALTH matters though. The really hilarious thing about this line of reasoning though is that the democrats were making the same exact claims 6 years ago with McCain. At that time, age was HUGE and it was obvious that McCain could not be president because of his age. The right called that out as bull shit. Now, suddenly, age is irrelevant to the left and the right cant get enough of it.

Politics - completely devoid of logic and consistency.

To old no but I'm not sure she really wants to run and as I have said before I don't think there is a lot of enthusiasm in the country for another Clinton or Bush Presidency.

Reagan was much healthier and had the genes to live to 90. Most people don't
Yeah, that is why Nancy was running the country at the end of his second term.

Reagan healthy? He started wearing hearing aids in his first year in office. He also had colon cancer, skin cancer, and early stages of Alzheimers.
