A GRIM TRUTH
“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.
