In reply to: OK, Mondale turns 90 next month, but you know he'll make it 's message, "Every Pres & Veep candidate in 1976 & 1980 have lived to be over 90 year old" on Tuesday, December 05, 11:53:11am

Presidents who lived to be 90, running in 1968 or before:

John Adams (elected 1796), lived to 90; Herbert Hoover (elected 1928), lived to 90.

Veeps:

Levi Morton (elected 1888), lived to 96; John Nance Garner (elected 1932 and 1936), lived to 98.

Runners-up for President:

Alfred Landon (nominated 1936), lived to 100.

Runners-up for VP:

Henry G. Davis (nominated 1904), lived to 92; John W. Bricker (nominated 1944), lived to 92.

After 1968---four Presidents have lived over 90, as have two other runners-up for President (McGovern and Dole), and one other VP runner-up (Shriver).

Five before 1968, seven since. Obviously modern medicine has changed things; whereas before, only the lucky made it to 90, now, of those who can afford it, it seems only the unlucky DON'T make it to 90.
