I used to play pickup basketball weekly. Sometimes, while picking teams we would say "old guys against the young guys". The young guys would get smirks on their faces, excited that they had the advantage: young, fast, energetic. Pretty much every time, the old guys would win. They weren't as fast. They couldn't jump as high. On the other hand, they had experience and played smarter.
We just had two debates:
65 year old Mitt Romney against 51 year old Barack Obama
69 year old Joe Biden against 42 year old Paul Ryan
A majority agree that the 65 year old beat the 51 year old.
It also looks like the 69 year old had a stronger showing than the 42 year old.
It wasn't policy. It was just that old guys rule.
