    "Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it has about 18 million cracks in it and the light is shining through like never before,"

    Clinton suspends her historic presidential bid - Boston.com

    Although my support of Hillary had very little to do with wanting a woman in the White House and everything to do with wanting the strongest and best qualified candidate to win the nomination, I am moved by her words. :clap2:

    And history shows that Senators do a terrible job as president. Too used to running things through a committee, not used to making the decisions alone.

    Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon leap to mind, although Tricky Dick was a congressman it's all the same. If you read the books about decision making, they were always asking other for consenus before acting. Compare that to Reagan, Carter and Clinton who were all governors. They made decisions on their own (usually). Not always good ones but decisions.

    U.S. Senate: Art & History Home > People > Senators > Senators Who Became President
