9. Fell for the line?
When was the last time a no name house member became president? Well there was Garfield elected in 1880.

And that's it.

It's almost impossible to be elected to the presidency from the House, and DK doesn't have the skills, moderation, or charisma.

Gephardt MIGHT have a chance, but DK is dead in the water.
