You bring up a good point. And it’s true of many other politicos.

When Ted Kennedy first ran for the Senate, for example, his opponent charged that if his name were Edward Moore rather than Edward Moore Kennedy, that nobody would take his qualifications in running for Senator seriously.

Ditto Hillary Clinton. There’s no way Hillary Rodham begins a political career and becomes a serious presidential candidate in her own right, if not for her connection to Bill Clinton.

I’m sure there are many other politicos who got high positions because of family or other connections, not because they themselves are so brilliant, have the answers to the nation’s problems, etc.
