California Sen. Dianne Feinstein is running for her fourth full U.S. Senate term at age 78. If re-elected, the Democrat will be 85 at the end of a six-year term, placing her among the oldest senators in an institution famous for politicians who stay in office well past their shelf life.
Feinstein's age - she is the fifth-oldest current senator - presents voters with a decision about whether evidence of the mental and physical decline of people in their 80s applies to the most-popular politician in the nation's most-populous state.
"The fact is, we do decline cognitively as we age, partly because we are losing a lot of brain matter," he said. "I will oversimplify, but roughly by the time we're in our 70s, the brain has atrophied quite a bit, so roughly we've lost 20 percent to 25 percent of brain volume by that time."
Intelligence, memory and learning ability all decline with age.
"Word-finding gets tougher and tougher; it kind of scares me," said Epstein, 58, who admitted to sometimes forgetting his children's names. "There are enormous differences individual to individual. But you can't ignore age, because you want your leaders to be highly capable cognitively."
