Grandpa for president – just what the US needs?

Like many I felt Biden is a bit old for the job, and he could just use what time he has left on this planet with family, and in preparation for the second most important life event which is our death. But Biden is president elect – hopefully Trump will man up, and concede defeat. Listening to his speech this morning (Australian time) I think Biden might just be what the United States needs right now; less an action man, leave that for the younger,  than a grandpa figure who commands respect from all parties and can offer sound and life-experience-based advise and fair arbitration in facilitating constructive debate. Thinking back to May 1968, I remember seeing in a television news report a student at the Sorbonne speaking to the a crowd of young rebels and saying, “There is too much action and not enough thinking!”
