GOP Presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani was on WGST this morning (click here to listen) with Randy & Spiff. Among the things Rudy said was that compared to the leading Democrats (Clinton, Obama and Edwards) he is the only one with executive experience. This of course is true and when compared with the other leading GOP candidates, only Giuliani and Romney have executive political experience (Huckabee does as well of course – he’s climbing but I’m not sure he’s risen to the top tier just yet).
How important is executive experience to the Presidency? The last Senator elected was Kennedy IIRC, the country having elected Governors and one VP since that time. Giuliani was a Mayor not a Governor, but he argues New York City is larger than many States.
What about all this?
