I haven't spent a ton of time watching the DNC, but what I have seen looks like a denture cream convention at a retirement home. Speaker after speaker, crowd shot after crowd shot, I just kept thinking "Old, old, old, old, old."
Strange, for a party that's supposed to have a stranglehold on the youth vote.
So I got curious. And did some math (not my area of expertise, but hey, I was curious.) Out of all the speakers at the DNC thus far this week--I'll revise this after tonight--the average age was almost 60 (59.7195).
And the speakers at the RNC? Over a decade younger! (48.8889)
More number crunching to come later.

UPDATE VI: Latest numbers I've crunched on age and the conventions.
