I don't think maturity is all it's cracked up to be. Frequently old people just end up getting more confirmed in their prejudices, and I can't say that I see that as a great thing in a leader. A man of middle years, with an enquiring and intelligent mind open to new information, is going to be the candidate I will want- and Obama is the only person I can see like that in this race. Romney has certainly been willing to flop around a lot, and deny his religion, but that seems more like insincere pandering than it does like an open mind, but then I'm annoyed with him for his "We ALL believe in Jesus" speech- since I'm an agnostic, and I don't, and the president really should be the president for everyone, not just for the folks who think they're going to heaven.

JMO of course
