Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer didn't do any favors for Joe Biden with their televised response to President Donald Trump's immigration speech last week. Pelosi in particular has drawn praise since the mid-term election for her skillful maneuvering to secure the House speakership and her aggressive jousting with Trump during the government shutdown. But the stiff and widely panned televised response from the two leaders -- an instant target for late-night comics -- quickly reopened questions about whether the Democrats' national leadership is too old.

And those that don't?

Those Democrats under 30 who continue to witness the last gasps of the worn-out, workaday dinosaur who managed to catapult Terrible Trump™ into the White House with their debilitated, WJC Tragical History and Reunion Tour
Are immune to your consultations.
Don't tell them to grow up and out of it--
Turn and face the strange.
(or prepare to unfurl your tattered red carpet of impotency when you welcome DJT back for Dotardmania II)
