Driving the news: 77% of adults think Biden, 80, is too old to effectively serve for four more years, with 89% of Republicans holding that view and 69% of Democrats, the AP-NORC poll found.
I think that I'll write in Jimmy Carter, the first person that I voted for in 1976 (-:
He'll be 99 in October and only did 1 term!
The 1976 United States presidential election was the 48th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 2, 1976. Democrat Jimmy Carter, former Governor of Georgia, defeated incumbent Republican president Gerald Ford in a narrow victory

There might not be a person on the planet with this many accomplishments/awards below!
Former President and Navy submariner Jimmy Carter (left) hoists a replica of the USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) given to him by Secretary of the Navy John H. Dalton (right) at a naming ceremony in the Pentagon on April 28, 1998.
U.S. President Jimmy Carter (born October 1, 1924) has received numerous accolades, awards, and honorary degrees. Several places, institutions, and other things have been named for him.
Carter has received honorary degrees from many American and foreign colleges and universities. They include:
In 1998, the U.S. Navy named the third and last Seawolf-class submarine the USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) in honor of former President Carter and his service as a submariner officer. It became one of the first Navy vessels to be named for a person living at the time of naming.
In 2002, a fish species was given a scientific name after him, the bluegrass darter (Etheostoma jimmycarter), for his environmental leadership and accomplishments in the areas of national energy policy and wilderness protection, and his lifelong commitment to social justice and basic human rights.

Though the last post was a joke, I want you to think about this.
Many feel that President Carter failed as a president, although I would make the case that things beyond his control happened.
Regardless, look at the credentials and accomplishments of this great man over his lifetime from a so called failed president and compare them to the 2 men that are the current favorites for their parties(both presidents) that have, instead of accomplishments have DONE GREAT HARM TO OUR COUNTRY!
Yet, these 2, Biden and Trump are leading by a wide margin!
48 years ago, both Trump and Biden would be seen as corrupt, over the hill, lying, laughing stocks.........oh wait, they are today.
Why would they have been vehemently rejected as candidates for the 1976 presidential election but in 2024, they are the leading candidates?
This shows that people have become detached from critical thinking and instead, follow group think, tribalism, MSM propaganda/DISinformation and especially, go to sources that tell them what they want to believe and reinforce what they think they know.

LOL I NEVER CARED FOR CARTER.
IMO... CORNEL IS GONNA BE THE DEATH KNELL OF THE DEMS TAKING 2024
This is exactly what I've been saying here for years!!
heard what I think could be the cure for what this Biden/Trump mess we deal with every day in America on the radio. Get a bill thru congress now that forbids a certain age candidate. Don't care what age you pick as Biden/Trump will be over whatever age is picked. Seems so simple and doable I don't know what we are waiting for,
Supreme court justices in Israel have mandatory retirement at age 70.
yes we could learn much from Israel
Age limits are a wonderful idea.
Only one insurmountable problem with regards to this issue.
The gatekeepers have a vested interest in keeping themselves in power as long as possible.
A 2022 YouGov poll reported that 58% of Americans want a maximum age for politicians. Those who support age limits usually say that politicians holding office should be no more than 70 years old. That would make 71% of current U.S. senators ineligible to hold office. It is unclear how age limits like that could be implemented.
