TERM LIMITS! That would get most of the elderly and befuddled out. Anybody remember Strom Thurmond? Plus, according to friends in SC, the older he got, the bigger a problem he had with - er, wandering hands. Women didn’t want to be in the same elevator with him.
People get very loyal to their legislator “de toda la vida,” as the Spanish would say, meaning “as long as I can remember.” So there needs to be a mandatory term limit for all offices.
Not term limits but a maximium age. How about we set 80 as the oldest you can be to run.
