Actuarially speaking, what are the odds that Bernie lives to 2024?

If he's 77 he's a little more than 24% likely to die in the next five years.

He has access to much better medical care than the average person. That statistic doesn't apply. And it doesn't matter anyways if he picks a solid VP.

Maybe I put more weight in the "won't die in office" criteria than most people.

Bernie dying in office and his VP becoming president is better than the alternative.

No, it’s Bernie or bust."

AOC fans should want a President Gillibrand because it means a fast track to a Senate seat.

I tend to agree but underestimate her at your own peril. She is a political bloodhound and will absolutely be a force to be reckoned with. Her answer to a question about how she did Franken was excellent.

Dawg have you ever seen her speak? She’s incredibly fake and boring.

All I get from this was that he basically looks the same today as he did 30 years ago.

Well, I mean, it DOES matter. Dying in office isn't a minor hiccup. Even assuming that Bernie's hypothetical successor was ideologically in lockstep with him - unlikely, because electoral math needs to be considered, and because he'll need to pick someone with foreign policy chops if he really has the country's interests at heart - even if you got someone who wanted to stay the course completely, there'd be precious weeks and months lost in which no real business took place. Plus, VP successors historically don't fare too well come election time.

I suppose one positive that could come of it is maybe it would reverse this troubling tend towards crusty geriatrics running the country.

His being old won't affect my voting for him in the general, if he's nominated, but you're a fool if you think "it doesn't matter" that a given candidate is substantially more likely to die in office. Other countries have a maximum age limit for high office and I'd very much favor the same here, though fat chance with AARP's surprisingly strong is arthritic grip on politics.
