The Rest of the Story, Please

At a Wednesday event at the Carter Center in Atlanta, former president Jimmy Carter said there should be an age limit for American presidents. He went on to admit that at age 80 he could not have handled the duties of the presidency. Though 38 years out of office, he remains silent on how badly he handled those duties when he was in his 50s.

“If I were just 80 years old — if I was 15 years younger — I don’t believe I could undertake the duties I experienced when I was president.”

We doubt it not here at TAS, though we’re agnostic on the question of whether other 80-year-olds could be competent presidents.
