Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has looked into the future and does not see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a viable candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the retiring politician and one-time Senate Majority Leader was asked about prospective candidates for the next presidential campaign, and he complained that the current leadership of the Democratic party would be a bit long in the tooth for the next race.

“It depends on who’s running,” the 77-year-old Reid said. “It appears we’re going to have an old-folks’ home. We’ve got [Elizabeth] Warren, she’ll be 71. Biden will be 78. Bernie [Sanders] will be 79.”

Nonetheless, there are those that believe Warren is aiming for the 2020 presidential race. Next month, Warren is joining the Senate Armed Services Committee in 2017, which would offer her a level of involvement in defense and foreign policy matters that she has been lacking. MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell called the step a "very important move that could be a first step in a presidential campaign."

President-Elect Donald Trump is coming to office next month at 70 years, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation’s highest office.
