Unfortunately all of the candidates are as old as your grandmother besides Buttigieg.

Sen. Klobuchar's only 59, just saying.

If this does end up being Sanders' time, I just hope he chooses a young and vibrant VP candidate.

I'm betting Nina Turner (who's only 52) ends up either as VP or DNC Chair. Probably the latter given her relative lack of experience in elective office, though.

Though they'll need substance, too. Palin was certainly young and vibrant, but she didn't do McCain any favors.

Does the VP need to be old enough to be president?

The VP has to meet all the requirements the President does, so yes.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez for now, yes, Rep. Omar yes barring a constitutional amendment.

I think Bernie needs to go more centrist with his VP pick to try and bring that side of the party with him.  Picking someone like Klobuchar might ease some anxiety and help out in the rust belt.

Though this does bring to mind an idea I had; decreasing the age requirement for running for President to 25.

Then he turns off part of his base, because it means "if I leave office the next person won't advance my policy priorities".

As for the Rust Belt, the biggest issue there is trade (and specifically being more protectionist), and Sanders already has that position.

She's going to get something important, she's been one of his most high-profile surrogates and most ardent defenders.

It's like a hostage-taking. ... If that campaign was milk, you'd look at the date and throw it out.

EDIT: Super Tuesday just got a lot more interesting with these South Carolina results.

Basically Biden will win the south but I think Bernie will win everything else.
