Simple addition:

No person may assume office as a Representative, Senator, or President past their 70th birthday.

This produces an automatic retirement age of 72 for Representatives, 74 for Presidents, and 76 for Senators. The founders were wise enough to put a lower limit of age on these offices (25, 30, and 35 respectively), but didn't foresee the issue we have with obviously senile politicians, and I don't just mean #FJB. We've seen that in Congress and the Senate as well at times.
