Age, Gender and Politics

I just read the oddest comment which asserts Secretary of State Clinton is too old for the job. Interesting opinion especially since she was born the same year as Mitt Romney. Even more interesting is that she has stated multiple times she is retiring this year. But Romney is campaigning for a new job.

Hmmmm…

In politics does age only matter when it is gender specific?  Does it only matter if the person questioning age is the same generation as those in question?  Does it matter at all?

Something certainly worth pondering…
