Letter: America needs younger presidential candidates

Bill Clinton became president 31 years ago. He left the Oval Office 23 years ago. President Clinton is still younger than President Biden or President Trump.

This is sad that these are our choices. Why not accept the fact that Biden is too old, and Trump is getting there on age quickly?

We need younger people like Sen. Joe Manchin, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. or anyone else really who is younger to take our country forward.

People are starving for common-sense leadership. The far left and far right do not serve us well at all.
