The Outlier

If  elected, she would be the youngest President-elect in the history of the United States. She also would be ineligible to serve, at time of the election next year, being then 34 and 35 is the Constitutionally-mandated minimum age. However, Taylor Swift was born on Dec. 13, 1989, which means she would be of age to take the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2025.

Despite insane popularity, the singer sure looks like a longshot at this juncture, particularly with no real political experience—although navigating the complicated contractual craziness of the music business and self-managing a multi-million dollar entertainment career isn’t that far removed from taking on Washington.

So, hey, campaign for her. Maybe she’ll comp tickets to her next stadium event, with backstage passes as perk. But don’t wait too long filing to be on the primary ballot in each state or commonwealth.

Could she beat Joseph Biden? C`mon, of course. Joe is grandpa—the one whom you make excuses for: His confusion (Where am I?); forgetfulness (What’s my name, again?); ricketiness (I’ve fallen down and can’t get up). You hide the car keys from him (eh, maybe the nuclear launch codes from someone else). The oldest-ever candidate running against the youngest-ever surely is a loser for Biden. Imagine what Taylor Swift could do to rally younger voters.
