Time in Public Office

Josh Marshall has a good post up today on the charges that Edwards lacks experience. People like Adlai Stevenson and Thomas Dewey had about the same or even less time in public office than Edwards and were nominated for president.

Of course, let's keep in mind that George Bush's only prior public office was governor of Texas, which basically qualified him to be elected president of the Peoria Chamber of Commerce.

And I loved Kerry's response to Bush saying, in reply to a question about Edwards' qualifications, "Cheney can be president." (From AP:) Kerry said "He was right that Dick Cheney was ready to take over on day one, and he did and he has been ever since, and that's what we got to change."
