A GRIM TRUTH

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Who cares about vice pres­i­dents, right? All they do is at­tend for­eign fu­ner­als that don’t in­volve Is­raelis or Saudis. But wait. This time it’s dif­fer­ent. And it could change our im­mi­nent his­tory,” writes Andrew Mal­colm, a McClatchey po­lit­i­cal columnist.

“Amer­i­cans are about to elect the old­est per­son to ever be­come pres­i­dent — Don­ald Trump is 70 — or the se­cond old­est — Hil­lary Clinton turns 69 this month and col­lapsed on na­tional TV last month. Based on ac­tu­ar­ial ta­bles, there seems a pretty good chance that one of these vice pres­i­den­tial part­ners could be­come com­man­der in chief at some point in the next four or eight years,” Mr. Mal­colm notes.
