Not since 1960–and only twice in our history–have we elected a

 sitting  U.S. senator to serve as president. But a race that started with a wide variety of candidates is now, for the most part, down to three Senators: McCain, Clinton and Obama.

Voters have generally preferred more executive experience in their presidents, but with no incumbent president or vice president running for the first time in 80 years, and no governor of a major state in the race, a U.S. Senator will be our next president.

Hillary Clinton says experience counts, but what exactly is her experience?  Eight years in the U.S. Senate (compared to 4 for Obama and 22 for McCain) and 8 years as the First Lady.  I asked my wife, who was close by when I served as a university president for 15 years, whether she felt prepared now to run a college.  She correctly said, “no.”

If experience counts, look for John McCain to be our next president.
