Her Resume

Drudge has a blurb that "Hillary Clinton has set a date to discuss a run for the presidency..."

Now, aside from the fact that her being President is a nightmare scenario, I just would like to know what she thinks makes her Presidential material. No, seriously, what does? She's a lawyer? So are thousands of people. She was First Lady? So she's qualified to be President because she was married to one? Not very feminista of her, is it? Not to mention her supporters that seem to think that who you marry is some sort of entree into the most powerful position in the Free World. She's been a Senator, for what, two years? Yeah, that fills me with confidence in her experience.

I'm going to bed now on these happy thoughts.

Fortunately, sitting US Senators have a terrible historical record of getting to the White House, despite nearly all of them seeing themselves as Presidents-in-Waiting. JFK was the last one, and before him? Martin Van Buren.
