Russian term or phrase: возрастной запас
Ваше политическое будущее – оно остаётся в Екатеринбурге?

– Мои оппоненты точно так же пытаются понять моё политическое завтра. Поэтому я вслух ничего не буду проговаривать. Но скажу, что возрастной запас у меня очень большой, востребованность очень высокая.
