Experienced required

It is interesting to me to note that many politicians express the opinion that Ronald Reagan was the best president during their lifetime and then go on to endorse one of the untried senators. They seem to forget that Reagan was our oldest president and former two-term governor of a state, while endorsing one of the senators that has accomplished nothing.

The presidency is not an on-the-job learning situation. We need an experienced person to preside over the complex situation. Perhaps Native Americans knew what they were doing when they listened and valued the opinions of the elders.
