Hillary Dodges Question About Biden's Age, Focuses on President's 'Experience'

Hillary Clinton recently addressed concerns about President Biden's age in an interview with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, shedding light on the legitimacy of this issue.

She drew parallels between Biden and former President Donald Trump, highlighting the importance of age in evaluating political leaders. Clinton's endorsement of Biden centered on his presidential merits, urging him to showcase his extensive experience and wisdom.

She even suggested a light-hearted approach for Biden to tackle age-related concerns, proposing that he humorously acknowledge his accumulated wisdom.

Clinton's comments come amid broader political discussions about Biden's performance and confidence.

James Carville, a strategist for former President Bill Clinton, speculated that Biden's decision to skip a Super Bowl Sunday interview might indicate a lack of confidence within the White House.

Paul Begala, another former Clinton strategist and CNN political commentator, expressed concern about the impact of Special Counsel Robert Hur's indictment on Biden's memory, viewing it as detrimental to the Democratic Party.

These viewpoints underscore the complex landscape of discussions surrounding Biden's presidency, encompassing considerations of age, confidence, and public perception.

The interview also comes just after the Hur report, a damaging assessment of Biden's actions that many argue should have led to charges.

Some compared the actions by Biden and his classified documents with Clinton's email scandal, further connecting the two.

Former FBI official Andrew McCabe, who served during the Clinton investigation, criticized Hur for including these details in the report.

During an interview with CNN's Kaitlan Collins, McCabe highlighted the obligation of special counsels to provide a comprehensive report to the attorney general at the conclusion of their investigations.

While acknowledging that Hur's report met the regulatory requirements by detailing the findings and rationale for not pursuing charges, McCabe suggested that Hur might have anticipated backlash for not charging Biden, especially after a grand jury indictment was secured by Special Counsel Jack Smith on multiple counts, including violations of the Espionage Act as age issues continue for the president.
