Obama Has More Experience Than Most Presidential Candidates
Which of the Presidential candidates has the most experience as an elected official? According to a new study by the researchers at Planning/Communications, it’s not who the campaign rhetoric suggests.
Topping the principal Democratic contenders is Senator Barack Obama with 11 years in elected office versus just seven for Senator Hillary Clinton and six for former Senator John Edwards — according to their own official biographies. The facts show that not only does Senator Barack have more experience as an elected official than the other major Democratic contenders, he tops half of the leading Republican hopefuls as well. Obama is the only candidate of either party to have his experience questioned by his opponents.
