I think a more valid, but much more difficult to measure metric would
be 'world experience' - how much you have lived and seen, the insights
you have gained.  Some people don't gain this even though they are
fairly old, others gain it at a young age.  Like it or not, however,
to some degree, it is tied with chronological age.  

That said, I certainly don't think that JC (heh, he has leader
initials..;-) lacks in this experience, but maybe there are others
with more..

So, let's hear the other nominations, I'm curious to see who comes out
of the woodwork;-)
