2. well, the only ONLY line from Ronald Reagan I ever thought clever was his retort to Mondale

 

when asked about his age (73) and whether that was too old to be President.

A line like this may come in handy for a number of our candidate.

"I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience," Ronald Reagan quipped during the 1984 presidential debates when asked if, at 73, he is too old to be President. The line a classic example of Reagan's sense of humor even solicited a laugh from Democratic opponent Walter Mondale.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
