While waiting for my haircut, I read an article in Time magazine which asks the question “how much experience is necessary?”
They’re talking about Obama, naturally. He has the least experience but apparently the most public support (I know that’s hugely debatable but he’s winning in the media at least).
The print edition of the article has a nifty graphic which shows all of the U.S. Presidents with a breakdown of the “experience” they had. Then the article breaks off and asks the question which I am asking you to answer.
Would you prefer a doctor who has practiced medicine for 30 years or just 10? (Assume the experience is post-education)
