"unless you count being First Lady as experience".

And you don't? Why? She was heavily involved in a variety of policy issues as a First Lady.

I personally think she did quite badly. But that doesn't mean I think she gained no political and/or policy-relevant experience whatsoever during those years.

I've polled a few people I know since your last post about this, Brendan, and have been faced with a resounding, "Of course she has more experience!" response.

True, my results are anecdotal, but there seems to be a fair number of people out there that consider being First Lady "experience" in this regard. And who knows - maybe it is? I, however, still remain unconvinced.

She may have had more experience but she has done less with it.
