    Joe would be 86 at the end of a second term.

    Robert Reich says in the (Guardian UK): "That’s deeply worrying, given what we know about the natural decline of the human brain and body. This isn’t an “ageist” prejudice against those who have reached such withering heights so much as an understanding that people in their mid-80s do wither."

    The Democrats have an extremely urgent situation regarding this and must deal with it, on top of everything else going on in the swamps of the District of Columbia. I would say it's an urgent priority.

    Biden has already expressed his egotistical desire to run for a second term, 'of course!'

    How could he be a capable and focused world leader at that age, or even a year from now. Imagine the stress and strain from another election campaign and what that would do to him.

    Another aspect to think about is if not Biden, WHO?

    You can read Robert Reich's carefully worded writings on the Guardian, UK News.

    Advanced age is certainly a MAJOR factor when debating whether Biden will announce a 2024 run or not.

    Are there underlying age-related health issues that we are not aweare of?

    Not only his age is against him, but also, his current low approval rating as well as the last classified documents investigation.

    Bernie Sanders, likewise, IF he decided to toss his hat into the ring, also has his age working against him.

    WHO will run for a Dem president in 2024?

    I sure as heck, in all honesty, have NOT a single clue......

    I have much doubt that Joe Biden will have a second term. But, you never know what the results of an election will be - impossible to predict with certainty.

    I agree; I, personally doubt that Mr. Biden will have a second term.

    But, then again, as you say, the situation is impossible to predict with absolute certainty.

    I often wonder if Mr. Biden is has any age-related health issues that have not been made public (recall Reagan and Alzhiemers)

    The best any of us can do, at the present is to simply sit, wait, and speculate.........

    I don't want Biden or Trump to run. Too old, much baggage.

    When I think of "young" Presidents, JFK, Bill Clinton, and Obama come to mind.

    Obama was the last "young" president we've had, to date.........
