Mitt Romney's top strategist told reporters last month that electing Hillary Clinton would be like time traveling back to the Dark Ages, because she's such a decrepit crone. “She’s been around since the ’70s,” he said. (Significantly more archaic: the GOP's stance on women's wages, reproductive systems, and "femininity" in general. But let's talk about the wrinkled hag!)

Hillary will turn 66 this coming October, which means she'd turn 70 during her hypothetical first year as POTUS. Okay, she's probably not getting carded anymore. But she's hardly old enough to be ridiculed by Republicans like Senator/House Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said the 2016 Democratic field was like “a rerun of ‘The Golden Girls.'" (BTW, McConnell is 71.)

Here are 101 animals, vegetables, and minerals that are older than Hillary Clinton.
