Governors are where we need to look—preferably men who have succeeded within the private sector as well.

Boy, am I glad that was not the prevailing wisdom when Lincoln ran for President.

Sorry if you disagree, but governors are where the most effective chief execs are from....Lincoln’s administrative skills were not necessarily the best; he went through a boatload of generals before he, lucky for him, stumbled into putting US Grant in charge of the effort.

I am not saying Lincoln wasn’t a fine President, but appealing to him as what we ought to expect from all candidates is daunting.

Are you suggesting we have a modern day Lincoln?
