Right, I understand exactly what you're arguing.

I'm saying that limiting people from voting for who they want based on probabilities is a bad road to go down. A much better solution to that problem is to convince voters not to vote for old people, to convince older Presidents to select a cabinet that won't be afraid to invoke the 25th Amendment and to select a Vice President who is younger and ready to step in.
