    That's the question with literally every D that runs, since none of them will have presidential experience. This is as profound as Sic pointing out that whoever gets the most votes (EC) will win.

    in a way this is close to point. unless you have done it, what else is a 'qualification'? once more, having years of taking money and lying to people to get them to vote for you is not something anyone should be posting to their cv

    He isnt trying to be profound, he is just stating his opinion. Is every post you have some deep meditation on the subject?

    Some people won't be able to handle the full spotlight. To put it in a baseball perspective, you can be a superstar at the AAA level, but not be good enough for the majors. Obviously, Klobuchar has done very well as a senator. Is she ready to make the jump? Can she handle the jump? On the surface, I would think so.

    My post is merely saying that Presidents deal with a LOT more issues (especially in the global sense) than senators. There's where the additional issues come in, and if/when she decides to run, she'll face questions that she probably hasn't faced before. Only when that happens, will we see if she's ready for the big show.

    He thinks fade somehow saw the future because fade posted something provocative about Klobuchar and then said, “Watch, the Minnesotans who like her will probably come after me now.”

    It’s like making a post about Bernie and predicting trix will reply. So clairvoyant!

    When my only replies about Klobuchar were asking him to clarify why he thought she was a loser and how he could possibly want a pragmatic candidate yet she was still a loser. I think you may have made a post or two about it as well.

    Then they circled their wagons. Despite no one going after fade and no one going after Brent. But fade made some eye-roll worthy post about me trying to “”Rube him”. Like I have some sort of vendetta against either. Which is ridiculous.

    Slightly off topic, but I can't stand Domenico Montanaro. He's one of the worst offenders when it came to treating the trump phenomenon like it was some sort of a joke and a gift to the media for ratings. And who goes from major TV networks (CBS & NBC) to a minor TV network (PBS) to radio? That would be like Sandra Bullock deciding the right career move for her in 2019 is to make soft-core porn for Cinemax.

    How does that make her more detrimentally different from the majority of the candidates?

    The Comments on this, at least as of 11:30 am Monday, are reasonable, insightful, and even-keeled. It might be time for the Republicans to worry. Putin's Operation Chaos may not work this time.

    Nobody is ready to run for president the first time. It's sui generis. That kid from South Bend might be the best candidate. We won't know until we see them play it out. Same with Klobuchar.

    Unknowns are no reason to oppose. We instinctively see a large field and try to create discriminators, but this early we should just sit back and let the information come in unfiltered and without having set up favorites. Preserve autonomy for as long as possible, because after you start making distinctions your unconscious biases will turn you into an idiot who is rooting, not thinking.

    That is the great lesson of 2016. They're not prospective dates, they're tools in the shed. Eventually we'll pick one for the job, but all the power of picking should come from us being logical, independent judges, not fans.
