    I came across an article today that put forth an interesting statistic:

    "Forty percent of Americans have never lived when there wasn't a Bush or a Clinton in the White House...

    ...for 116 million Americans, there has never been a time when there wasn't a Bush or Clinton in the White House, either as president or vice president."

    The greatest, most powerful nation the world has ever seen, and with 300 million people, there's no one besides people named "Bush" or "Clinton" who are qualified to run it?
