When I was in my early twenties I had a plan: at 25—the constitutionally mandated minimum age—I was going to run for US Congress. But I got sidetracked when I decided to go back to school instead. By the time I got to 30, the age to serve in the senate, I had moved to New York and was busy living my life. According to the constitution one must be at least 35 years old to serve as president. Connor Ratliff has taken this to heart. He began his campaign for the presidency about a year and a half ago, when he was 35. He is now 37, still much closer to 35 than any of the other candidates. I too am 37, and would like to think that somewhere in an alternate universe I am the one running.
