    Oh, don't get me wrong, I knew perfectly well you'd be able to rationalize it. The human mind is nothing if not creative.

    I would not support her for POTUS, but I like her and respect her constituents views. Thats not too creative.

    POTUS vs House rep. Are they equal in your (nuanced) eyes, Kobie? Can we agree they aren't the same?

    Never claimed they were. However, you're now rationalizing "experience" to apparently only apply when running for President.

    It doesn't get much less experienced than an 18-year-old. But hey, best of luck to her. She's gonna need it.

    You know, no one would think less of you if you just admitted you gave one a pass over the other because of their differing ideology. And even if they did, admitting it still wouldn't make your head spontaneously combust.

    Im saying I hold them to different standards. Because they aren't the same. Besides, how much worse could she be compared to what we have now?

    Yes, I'm sure THAT'S why you hold them to different standards. Nothing to do with the letter after their name.

    Thats not what I've done. POTUS =/= House Rep. Im sure you can figure that out.
    I'd also support someone with no political experience if I felt they were qualified for POTUS. Take Ben Carson.

    "Qualified" = "conservative"
