    Is anyone else concerned with Trump, Biden and Bernie as the potential president given their ages? If any of those guys wins, he’ll be the oldest president in history. Trumps obesity and Bernie’s heart problems obviously add some greater concern, but even Biden (probably the most physically fit of the three) is going to start breaking down quickly in his 80s too. Is anyone else concerned with potentially having an invalid or severely diminished man in office until 2025?

    Yes, it's bad. And Buttigieg is too young and inexperienced, though after eight years as VP, he'd be great.

    Can you say Biden is really physically fit when it feels like you're seeing a dude's memory deteriorate as the campaign goes along?

    Trump is high energy.

    his Sudafed keeps him high octane for the presidency. My greatest fear is a Nikki Hailey as VP. Should be bannon.

    Biden is the one who should be worrying people the most. He appears to have legitimate dementia which becomes worse under stress. While Bernie and Trump are old and there are legit questions about their health, they both appear to have their wits about them.

    Depends on their VP.

    I don't think anyone voting for Trump would be upset at a Pence presidency, and I doubt Biden would pick a VP where things would be much different if they had to take over.

    Bernie is by faaaar the biggest concern in this. We already know that with socialism and huge government takeovers or any "revolution", it's often the next guy where things turn horrific, like Maduro or Stalin, and Bernie is surrounded by psychos and radicals who think gulags were great that he won't fire or even admonish, and given that Bernie already had a heart attack recently, it's in no way worth the awful gamble even if you like Bernie.

    Do you think the early years of a Buttigieg presidency would be worse than the late years of Trump, Biden, Sanders presidencies?

    Trump, definitely. He combines inexperience with obvious and advanced senility. Interesting question with regard to the other two (especially since there's a learning period for anyone, though Biden will probably not have one). I'm going to pass on trying to answer, as I just don't think there's a good basis for one, but I'll stay with being concerned about both Buttigieg's lack of experience and with those other guys' age.

    I’d be surprised if it was pence again. He needs someone energizing.

    Biden and Bernie, yeah. Not Trump, though. He's the healthiest person on Earth after all.

    Nah, it'll definitely be Pence. There's no reason to mess with that.

    It will definitely be ironic if we get our first first gentleman due to a gay man as president rather than a woman

    Interesting. Appreciate the unique thought into it. Always felt it was a forgone conclusion for a president to re run with his same vice pres unless some massive scandal from the VP side
