No Such Thing As Too Old

Think McCain’s too old to be President? Think again.
The Chicago Tribune’s Steven Chapman asked in a column last week whether John McCain is too old to be President. Philadelphia’s own Alfred Gilbert today answered the question with a reality check [1].
AARP is non-partisan, but we’ll defend any candidate – young or old – who is unfairly targeted because of their age. Anyone who thinks leadership is limited by age should look no further than Winston Churchill, who led the United Kingdom to victory in World War II in 1945 – when he was 70 years-old!
