    That was an interesting case but Rand did not take the office his father had.

    different state, different office doesn't bother me as much as say the "Kennedy" seat in Mass.

    That doesn't mean being lib or con, it means being mindful that these people are already well connected to the insiders and that it wouldn't be prudent to vote for them.

    I know, I'm reaching with this.
    People don't care about this stuff, they just want their team to win, regardless of the consequences.

    So just because you come from a "political" family means you shouldnt be voted into office?

    There should be a higher amount of skepticism and much more voter vetting, imo.

    I am also no fan of these political dynasties we tend to get. But at the same time, if you are raised by politicians and grow up surrounded by politics, and everyone, including the media, is always asking you about politics, it is understandable that you may likely go into a career in politics.

    It wouldn’t be so bad if we could make anathema the concept of the career politician.

    that's a great idea

    back in the olden days it was a sacrifice to go into office. the best politicians are those for whom political office was often their worst or lowest paying jobs

    look at lots of the clowns we have now. What would Maxine Waters etc do that would make them more money then they get in congress?

    Trust me, HoJ is ONLY concern about if someone is conservative or not. There is no other qualification for being bad or evil. It just that lame.

    Chelsea is bright. that hardly qualifies her for office, however.

    I'd say the same thing which qualifies every other American citizen to run for office: the constitution... but that's just a crazy thought. Forgive us if we don't all ascribe to logical fallacies.
