Would Hillary Clinton be the most prepared Presidential candidate ever?

Not my candidate. Not humping that leg...yet. But, as far as being prepared to to be President. Not going to get much better than this resume.

NY times article and my prose:

If Hillary Clinton ran for president again, she would probably be the best-prepared candidate in American history:
  • Graduate of Yale law school. Worked as an intern in the Senate.
  • Member of the impeachment inquiry staff advising the Senate during the Watergate scandal.
  • One of the first female faculty professors at the Univ. of Arkansas Law school. Ans female pardner at the Rose Law firm.
  • She lived in the White House for 8 years. Was a confident of the President. So much so that she and Willie got a lot of flack for a unelected person having so much influence. Went through the battles on the hill from a Presidents perspective with health care.
  • Served in the United States Senate for 8 years.
  • Secretary of State for 4 years. She would know virtually every head of state in the world and also has a strong opinion about the merits of the Peruvian minister of development and social inclusion.

I don't care what her supposed qualifications are...anyone who believes in big government, big spending, and more layers of bureaucracy is not the most prepared candidate in my eyes. For all of her experience she has the political views of a 20 year old college student. No thanks. I'll vote Gary Johnson again.

dude chill. the OP was about qualifications, not whether she would be a good president. We can debate that in 3 years, maybe.

No doubt. Jefferson and Franklin are my favorite founding fathers.

Things were a lot different back then, if you wanted something you REALLY had to earn it.

Obama had hardly any experience but has the same bad ideas.

Sam Adams for me...but they were all remarkable, and it was truly incredible that group of men were toghether at that time... a lot of people don't know, but George Whitfield was huuuuge in the day...spoke to to thousands with a booming voice.

US diplomacy under Secretary of State Clinton has been terrible. I'm not sure where this idea that she's well prepared comes from other than the fact that the bar was lowered to the floor with the election of Barack Obama.

I don't think she'll even run, but I'm sure you're right either way.

The weak Secretary of State that democrats should be trying to recruit to run for POTUS in 2016 is Colin Powell. He'd be very hard to beat unless be turns out to be a Rick Perry or Fred Thompson quality candidate.

A Rubio- Condoleezza Rice Ticket would be a bit of a nightmare scenario for the Democrats.
