She’s already lived in the White House for eight years, and now she wants to go back. Senator, Secretary of State, and now President? Since her primary loss to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton has had her eyes on the big chair, and all the other stuff she’s done has simply been to add to her own resume. Now she’s hoping that resume will be good enough to fight to the forefront of a crowded Democratic field and claim the right to take on all comers in the 2016 Presidential election. Hillary Clinton will be announcing her 2016 Presidential campaign on Sunday.
There’s one big issue standing between Hillary and the presidency, and it’s not her general unpopularity among people who aren’t die-hard Democrats. That issue is her age. She’s old. Not just old by normal standards, she’s ancient by political standards, particularly for a Presidential run. She’s 67 right now, she’ll be 68 before the first primary, and by the time she gets to the next inauguration, win or lose, she’ll be 69. That would make her the second-oldest President EVER, just behind Ronald Reagan. And, unlike Reagan, she’s not exactly in great health; remember, she quit the Secretary of State position because the travel was too much for her. If that job is too hard, she’s definitely not in Presidential shape, no matter her other qualifications.
