And yet, at age 69 he suddenly started putting in that kind of work into running for President. I see no justification for your highlighted claim. Is 70 some kind of magic number???
I disagree. I think most of the work had already been done. This was an opportunistic move, not a will-to-power move. He was already a celebrity.
