Does a President need political experience?

<< < (3/3)

(note: This is my general answer and is not specific to the upcoming US presidential election.)

We agree with this, with the side note that they should not be so incompetent or clueless that they are liable to do significantly more damage with a high probability than the selfish person.

Old Rabbit:
So far Trumps lack of political experience is showing, I hope he isn't gullible enough
to listen to one side or the other. Many people like winners, and I think Trump does
too. I hope he doesn't give people important jobs just because they helped him get
elected. That could be a big mistake. Getting elected and running a world power is
two different things.  I hope he knows enough history to understand what
works and what could create more problems for us all.  Time will tell.
