The Forum Ed Board: Age not an issue in presidential campaign
FARGO -- The age factor in the presidential campaign has turned out to be no factor at all. The three candidates left standing are, in popular parlance, senior citizens. They qualify for Social Security and Medicare benefits. They are grandparents. Should he win, Donald Trump would...
