Sixty is not too old, unless you figure the GOP won't win again for 20 years.
She could serve for 30 years or more.
They are working on that.
If they keep spending and enacting socialist policies, while barely concealing obvious (if not Democrat-level) corruption, it might not be so far-fetched a scenario.
We optimists at FR think the Democrats are a laughable moonbat-ridden finished force, and will not soon be electing any Presidents. Think again.
At Tradesports , a Democrat President winning in 2008 is trading at roughly 50%. Should a Democrat win, a Second Term is more likely than not. Should a Republican win in 2008, keeping the streak alive in 2012 would be increasingly difficult. Thus as it stands now, the odds are quite likely that a Democrat would be President for her retirement prone ages 64-72.
President Bush needs to lock in several decades of quality conservative originalist quality with this pick, not 10-15 years of mediocrity. Withdraw NOW!
