“I’d like to see somebody between the ages of 40 and 55 run for president,” Dean said, regarding the possibility of Elizabeth Warren running for the Democratic nomination in 2020.
Former Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean didn’t seem to thrilled by the idea of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) being the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nominee, citing her age as the reason why during an interview on MSNBC on Sunday.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Dean if Warren should run to be the Democratic Party’s nominee in 2020, and if he thinks she would be a viable candidate.
“She’d certainly be viable. I believe strongly that my generation needs to step into a coaching role, and that we need to have much younger people running for president,” Dean told Reid.
Dean noted how the party had gone back a generation. “Barack Obama was a new generation now, then we went back because Hillary Clinton was the overwhelming favorite for the nomination among Democrats.”
“I’d like to see somebody between the ages of 40 and 55 run for president,” Dean concluded.
Warren will be 70 years old in 2020, making her about 15 years outside Dean’s ideal age range.
