    Well...Clinton and Bush were both Governors. They both had executive experience. Ah Cheney and Rumsfeld held SEVERAL cabinet positions and ran BIG companies..again...executive experience..but running a campaign...now THATS leadership..OMG!

    Experience is only one aspect of leadership, alexc.........and considering the results of the "experienced" Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, well, vastly over-rated!
    It's interesting that you keep circling back to the experience thing. Do you think it will matter anymore now than it did a year ago?
    You don't get it- people want CHANGE. In a change year........experience just doesn't matter. Clinton tried running on the experience thing- it didn't work. And it hasn't worked for McCain. Why on earth would you think it suddenly will now?

    Oh c-mon alexc! Yes, experience is not the most important thing when voting for president- do I have to remind you of the great presidents who had little experience? Sometimes a candidate comes along who's inspiring enough to make people take a chance- and this is one of those times. From what I've read about Obama.......and how he's run his campaign........I feel very comfortable voting for him. Despite his little experience.
    In a "change" year, other things trump "experience"- don't you think? How did it work out for Clinton- running on "experience"? How is working out for McCain?

    One of the clients I work with is a HUGE supporter of McCain and worked endlessly on his primaries campaigns. Even he has said from the perspective of running a campaign, that Obama did a better job. He said McCain has run an awful campaign in the last 8 to 12 weeks where Obama was spot on.

    This from a man who worked on it and is still a complete supporter.
