The Democrats aren’t likely too proud of themselves right now.
After all, this is the party who’ve made a name for themselves by claiming that they are the only place for Americans who don’t identify as white men. That is, of course, a bit of an exaggeration, but not terribly off-base.
Now, with Super Tuesday literally just hours away, they’ve been left with only a few real contenders in the race and, of the men running, the youngest candidate is septuagenarian Joe Biden.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, 77, is now the youngest male candidate in the Democrats’ presidential primary after former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race Sunday.
As of last week, Buttigieg, 38, was the field’s youngest candidate. He would have been 39 years and one day old upon taking up the White House had he won the general election. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the presumed frontrunner, is the oldest at 78 years old, followed by former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who is only eight months younger than the Vermont senator. Sanders will be 79 if he wins the White House.
For comparison, President Donald Trump is a relatively spry 73 years old, having taken office at 70.
To make matters worse, both Bloomberg and Sanders have been locked in an argument over who has the healthier heart, with the Big Apple billionaire releasing a slew of new medical records in an attempt to bait Bernie to do the same.
