Should presidential candidates have age limits? An expert weighs in | USA TODAY

President Joe Biden is the oldest sitting president. If he wins re-election, he will be 86 when he finishes his term in the White House.


Aging has changed dramatically over the centuries. Medicine and better lifestyles have significantly diminished the effects of time.

In the past, things were much different. In 1783, for example, at age 51, Gen. George Washington resigned his military commission and took a hard look at himself.

Old people today, so to speak, are much younger than they used to be, especially when they are wealthy. The field of anti-aging is waxing, and data suggests that science might be able to extend not only life span, but also the years a person remains healthy and free from disease. Furthermore, a youthful frame of mind can have a powerful effect, increasing longevity.

  1. If they can do the job, then let them. Age is just a number. I don’t believe in age discrimination. 🤷‍♀️
