This is an interesting factoid:
… right now, the Republican presidential bench is much deeper, and younger, than the Democrats’: The average age of the five Democrats already running for president, along with Biden and Gore, is 66 years old. By contrast, the average age of the 17-person Republican presidential field is 57.4 years old.
And it represents a real problem for Democrats. But for right now, they can’t do anything about it. Why? Easy: if they want to rebuild their brand, first they’d have to admit that there’s something wrong with their party. And that there’s something wrong with Barack Obama, who is the face of their party.
They will, of course, not do this. It’s easier to complain about redistricting and scary big money. Not necessarily smarter, but it’s certainly easier.
