Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders this week suggested he may run for president again in 2024, though the longtime socialist did not outright confirm his intentions one way or another. 

“That’s a big — you know, I haven’t made that decision,” Sanders said when asked about his plans on CBS Mornings. 

Were Sanders to run, he would be the oldest person to have ever attempted to do so by a considerable margin. The senator will be 83 in 2024. 

Joe Biden, who among presidents or presidential contenders is closest to Sanders in age, was 77 when he ran for and won the presidency in 2020. 

Sanders on CBS appeared to try to dismiss concerns about his advanced age.  

"Look, this is what I think," he said on the show. "You can’t categorize everybody. You’re different than everybody, you know. We’re all different. We’ve got to look at the individual. But what I think we do, guys, is we look too much at race, at gender, at age."

"What does somebody stand for?" he continued. "What are their views? Do you agree with them?”
