    Yes, political experience in office qualifies as political experience.

    By that logic Palin was more qualified than Obama as she'd been in political office longer.
    Where exactly did I say it was the only qualification, or even the most important? Please point out where I said that. If I didn't say that, then your whole point kinda falls apart.

    Strawman. Redress's post wasn't anything to do with a "litmus test". It was to do with the topic of this thread, which was asking about people COMPLETELY LACKING in political experience. A poster suggested "Obama" as an example, and Redress...accurately...pointed out that Obama would not fall into the category talked about in the OP because he had held political office.
