    What qualifies Pete Buttigieg to be President of the United States?

    He was mayor of a city of slightly over 100,000 for 8 years. He wants to control the largest economy in the world, the largest military in the world but what experience does he have that says this is a good bet?

    The only real comeback for that question is that Trump did it, so why can't a guy who is smarter and who has political aspirations do it?

    I don't want Pete to get the nomination because I do think he's too green and too unknown, but again, Trump did it and he screwed things royally. Pete can't do much worse.

    He is gay, and he has the "right" education, and he follows the DIE Religion script.

    That he comes from Fly-Over Country must be overlooked.

    He meets the Constitutionally defined requirements - beyond that, it's up to the electorate. Trump became POTUS with no prior public service experience, was impeached and is running for re-election.

    How did Trump screw things up? Trump is not a war hawk, and other than the dumb tariffs, the economy is doing fine.

    He is even less qualified than Sarah Palin, who was at least a Governor of a State.

    What qualifies Trump to be President? He IS President. Do you have a candidate who IS President?

    Political skill, most specifically knowing where the people were when no one else did.

    Do you have any more questions in need of answering?

    I might be able to help!
