Article Two of the United States Constitution sets the qualifications required to become president.

Presidents must be:

natural-born citizens
at least thirty-five years old
must have been resident in the United States for at least fourteen years

Nowhere in there does it state that there is a progression of positions required, nowhere does it state that there MUST be a political background. Nowhere in there does it state that you must have achieved anything, or have any specific college degree.

So each AND EVERY current candidate IS QUALIFIED to become President of the USA, regardless of ANYONE'S personal opinion regarding their employment histories.

Yes, all of the candidates meet the legal requirements you outlined above.

There is an important distinction however, between meeting those simple requirements and being *qualified* to become President of the United States. Most of us on this forum probably meet those requirements too. I think it's safe to say that none of us is qualified for the presidency.

It seemed clear that the discussion wasn't about legal requirements. Obviously, Americans need to consider the merits of each candidate's experience, philosophy and character. In the end, of course, that will be a function of each person's opinion.

During the Bill Clinton years, I worked for the L.A. Times Poll. (The last newspaper to do its own polling, thank you.) I was impressed at the number of older white men who expressed extremely high opinions of Clinton. Several told me they thought he was the best president since Roosevelt. I can't forget one man, when asked about the Monica situation said. "That should never have been brought out in the way it was."

I agreed with these old guys. Maybe because I'm an old woman.....well, still.

The only people my dad ever liked were Bill Clinton and Dale Earnhardt. Maybe that's him you talked to. He claims that Clinton never lied to anybody, at least not by his own definition of lying.

Sounds like you were raised in a Democrat household like me.

I became a Buddhist and married an African-American (I'm white) but my mom had no problems with that and loved her grand-daughter to bits.

When my brother told her he was thinking of voting Republican, she threw a hissy fit and told him she'd never cook chicken and dumplings for him again! I don't know how he voted, but he never discussed it in the family again. Didn't want to miss out on that good Southern cookin'!

I was raised that way. My mother was held office as elected Democrat. My dad was still under the idea that the
dems where for the working man.

well in dad day they may have been. But that ended 20 years ago.

clinton like bush jr, both will go down as back to back bad presdents.

Yea, I guess. My dad used to call me a commie anarchist though, so I guess I'm too liberal even for his mostly middle-of-the-road politics.

Yeah, I have to take some giant steps toward the middle, to be able to vote for anyone in most elections. That's OK with me -- just as long as the elections aren't fixed.

You can be happy now that you can't watch youtube videos. I posted a link to an HBO documentary called "Hacking Democracy" on a thread I started a few days ago. It would make you even more skeptical than it appears you already are.

I think I saw something about that on another forum. Is it about the Diebold machines?
