In the last fifty or sixty years, how many Presidents have we elected with Foriegn Policy experience. One. George H.W. Bush, Eisenhower, and Nixon. LBJ ascended to office by default That is it. Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Bush 43, and Kennedy had no prior foreign policy experience, yet we are holding a Vice Presidential candidate to a higher standard than we have held Presidential candidates. Why is that? Is it because she is a woman? Is it because she is pretty? It can't have anything to do with her so called "extremist" ideals, because their are those on the left that were considered extremist in their day that turned out to be foreign policy geniuses(ie. Adlai Stevenson). So somebody tell me what I am missing. Why are we are holding a Vice Presidential candidate to a higher standard than we have held Presidential candidates?
