16. And Hillary would be 69.

If she is in good health, that isn't medically too old to do the job, but for practical purposes, it is way too old.

Obama was 47 when he took office. That was a little on the young side, but we saw the advantage of being able to inspire and mobilize young people in the last two elections. Clinton and Biden can't do that, period. And without that, we lose, period.

The only possible asterisk to that would be the historic nature of the first female President. On that basis, I could see a (weak) argument for Clinton, but Biden -- never. That is electoral suicide.
