Yep, I agree with Walker.

Governors make better Presidents. “Better” defined as effective in putting through agendas.

A study of history will show that to be the case; governors are administrators and delegate and direct. In the best cases they are men like Reagan—”big picture” guys who know how to pick reasonable men to carry out their directives.

Not one is perfect, but the Presidency is an executive, administrative job—and a legislator is one of 500, working to “compromise” with the other 499 know-it-alls.

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

Carter had been a governator, so it’s not a Law.

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