Candidates* are now expected to be healthy and active much more than before, when I think statesmanlike and . . . I dunno, 'solid' were more attractive to voters.

I remember when Bill Clinton was first running for president, he'd be filmed jogging and he'd smile and wave, but he was obviously out of shape and uncomfortable. After years of that, he was clearly much fitter. That type of lifestyle change can add a few years.

* This year is clearly exceptional in any number of ways.
