It’s a merry din that Republicans are making, as if they just took notice of Hillary Clinton’s age, three years before the next presidential election. (That’s 12 cycles of Botox, if anyone’s counting.)
Clinton will be 69 when inaugurated — and yes, inaugurated she will be, if her enemies retain the inane and oily strategy of suggesting that she’s too old to be president. It’s a bizarre political miscalculation in a country creaky with baby boomers, who are turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 a day. And it will backfire, creating fervent Clintonistas out of the mud masks of undecided women with no budget for cosmetic injections.
