"In America, anyone can be president. That's the problem." -George Carlin Ahhh...a little humor on the subject...do you feel that Presidents should be Harvard or Yale trained...preferably constitutional lawyers? or life long politicians?
I just think this is a funny joke that makes a good point about the types of people we end up electing; I obviously don't think there should be some kind of rule requiring a presidential candidate to have certain background.
Personally I think the idea of a "washington insider" is completely overblown. There are plenty of career politicians with law degrees from prestigious schools who have very different points of view and do not simply fall in line with their partly line or lobbyists.
