Reporter's Notebook: Dianne Feinstein and the debate over lawmakers' fitness to serve

It is said that one should count your age by friends, not years – which brings us to 88-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Washington has buzzed for a few weeks about whether Feinstein, the oldest lawmaker in either the House or Senate, is up for remaining in office. Recent reports featured lots of unnamed sources and whispers suggesting that Feinstein isn’t "up to the job" at her age and has more than lost her fastball. There is chatter that she’s easily confused and may suffer from memory issues.
