146. Basing your voting decision on experience only is pretty stupid too
which would have kept many fine politicians out of office.

Here's a silly notion - Let the folks from PA learn more about these candidates and we'll let them decide who is best.

BTW, didn't see you jump in on the thread about Sam Nunn's daughter running for US Senate. You know she has no political experience either, or does she get a free pass since her dad was a senator?
