Dianne Feinstein Will Be 85 When She Runs For Re-Election Next Year
Caitlin Johnstone

While I concur that individuals should be realistic about their limitations before seeking positions of responsibiity that impact the lives of others, I do note that the benefits of age: wisdom-perspective-detachment-experience etc, suggest that we need more cross generational leadership teams in both politics and government. Multiple studies show that institutions and companies that feature diversity of age as well as culture, race and gender, consistently out perform those less diverse. Sen Feinstien brings to the Senate a level of experience and institutional knowledge that is invaluable and not negated by her age. History shows that societies that run best listen most to their grandmothers.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
