Don't mean to sound cruel, but it just strikes me that this guy could bite the dust during the next 8 years. Nor would it surprise me. If I was a betting man...
If he wins the presidency, he will be the oldest man (72) ever elected president with the exception of Ronald Reagan's second term.
It was a big deal then. You can bet his opponents will bring it up (albeit subtly -- as in planting the seed in the media's head) this time too.
Assuming he gets the nomination, it also makes his choice of VP much more important.
Of course, whoever wins in November will serve during a time when life expectancy is longer than when others were president. You are right though. If McCain wins the GOP nod, his age will be an issue. I am not as concerned with his age as much I am with his policies. I still don't have anyone that I am for, only against.
Any one voting for McCain might as well vote for Hillary or Obama, there isn't a great difference.
I think his mother is still alive and in her 90's and gets around ok.
I think I saw something about that on TV.
he may live a long time.
