21. And explain why that renders Hillary unqualified?
Sandra Day O' Connor was judge for a grand total of 5 years. Again, why is Hillary not qualified? Are you suggesting that if Hillary serves a few token years in a state court system for a few years, ala Sandra Day O'Connor, she suddenly becomes qualified?
