The esteemed political writer Charlie Cook recently produced a column titled “Is Hillary Clinton Too Old to Run?” Despite couching his thoughts with a mention that if Clinton were to run, she would be the same age as Ronald Reagan when he was first elected president, 69, he did venture over the sexism line.
The giveaway came toward the end when Cook noted that Clinton could be challenged for the nomination by Vice President Joe Biden, without noting Biden’s age. Biden is almost five years older than she is.
