Let’s Pretend We’re Serious About Electing a President – Part 1: Experience

November 1st, 2007

The branch of government that the President presides over is called the Administrative.

So which of the major candidates have experience administrating?




Mitt Romney

Governor of Mass.

Mike Huckabee

Governor of Arkansas

“Rudy” Giuliani

Mayor of New York

Fred Thompson

U.S. Senator

John McCain

U.S. Senator

Ron Paul

U.S. Congressman

Bill Richardson

Governor of New Mexico

U.S. Congressman

Hillary Rodham Clinton

U.S. Senator

First Lady

Barack Obama

U.S. Senator

John Edwards

U.S. Senator

So based on experience as an administrator, cialis buy try I think we can only seriously consider Mitt Romney, generic viagra nurse Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, Bill Richardson, and Hillary Clinton (I know Hillary was only First Lady, but of the entire group she’s the only one who has actually seen what it’s like to be President close up and personal.)

Next up: Iraq.

    Er, Paul-Nut is a Congressman, not a Senator.

    Fixed. I was sleepy.

    You forgot Fred Thompson’s experience as a District Attorney and Admiral. That counts as administrative, right?

    I think those only count if he’s running for President on The West Wing.

    Mitt also has business administration experience.

    First Lady, I would venture to say, is a very “administrative” position.

    John is right Elliot. She picked the China, fired the travel staff, and made a KILLING… in the market.. Hillary for queen! Hussah!

    Um, Bill Richardson? If you’re going to put Paul and McCain on there, you can add Bill Richardson. I don’t think there’s room on your chart for his experience.

    Good catch, Jay. You should blame the media for that man’s invisibility.
