Prediction Poll: Which Arizona Senior Citizen Will Stay in Public Office the Longest?
Although it was just a month ago that Senator John McCain hinted that this might be his last term, he's walked back on that one (of course).
McCain, who made his first trip to Congress in 1983, now says he's "seriously thinking about maybe" running for reelection in 2016.
Of course, there's another elderly gentleman from the Grand Canyon State who's announced his intention to seek reelection in 2016 -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who's currently 81 years old.
By the 2016 election, McCain would be 80, and Arpaio would be 84.
Make your predictions in this morning's poll: which senior citizen will stay in office longer (as far as the calender's concerned, not by age)?
