This sort of thing is not new.

I do prefer all my candidates with a bit more knowledge of law and government, though.

At least Reagan had been a governor of a large state first.


It's claimed that Warren G. Harding was elected based on his looks...and it was the first time women were allowed to vote, so this isn't a surprise.

Donald Trump was a businessman FIRST, celebrity came later.
