Let's get one thing straight: Elizabeth Warren is running. http://t.co/6hfySTsipE— Noah Shachtman (@NoahShachtman) July 15, 2014
Being POTUS is the most important job in the world. You're supposed to be the leader of the free world (not that the current job holder seems very interested in that part of his duties). You wield the most powerful military in history, the biggest bully pulpit in the world, set domestic policy for the largest economy in the world, and so on and on.
We have seen in the last few years what a disaster one gets when one elects an inexperienced amateur, which brings me to that tweet.
Elizabeth Warren was a serious and deservedly respected bankruptcy law professor at Harvard. But she's only been in the US Senate since January 2013--less than 2 freaking years!--and has zero--as in nada, zilch, no--executive experience of any relevance.
I hope the Democrats at least have the good sense to nominate somebody with experience as a Governor or Mayor, so that their candidate has actually had some experience in doing executive things like, say, meeting a budget. At least that way their candidate will just have bad ideas, because bad ideas coupled with inexperience has not been very fruitful.
