Ronald Reagan, who died of Alzheimer's, is someone who is often invoked when people argue for presidential age limits. His son said he observed the signs of the disease in his father as early as 1984. Lesley Stahl had an interaction with him in 1986 where his apparent dementia left her "too astonished to move." For the good of the country, and of the world, we need to know if the Commander-in-Chief is at his or her full mental capacity at all times.

Others argue age is nothing but a number. Decades of experience—whether in diplomacy, the law, or politics—are invaluable. An age cap would be ageist, and cause us to lose out on presidential candidates with invaluable life experience.
