Um, I’m 69. I stand by my opinion that old white men need to let younger men and women take over some, if not most, seats in Congress. As for know-how and experience, Joe will be a great president — especially balanced with a younger congress. Nancy can stay, too, because she’s smart and tough.

We should not have our laws made by old men who have ruled forever and who largely won’t be here to live with what they do.

I do value experience, but not the kind MCConnell and his buddies have. They’re experienced alright — at getting rich by being in Congress.

But thanks for reading and I do agree with some of what you said.
