Unless it doesn't. This race has been so
Except for this: if, as expected, McCain knocks Romney out of the running tomorrow, it's certain that the next President of the United States will be the first one in 48 years to have had no experience as President, Vice-President, or Governor of a State. McCain, Clinton, and Obama: Senators, all of them, and none of them with direct executive experience. (Sit down, Clinton supporters...) Admittedly, Ford was only Veep for about 8 months, but it counts as much as anything... Truman was only Veep for 4 months, after all.
