Quote of the Week

“Experience never exists in isolation; it is always a factor that coexists with temperament, training, background, spiritual outlook and a host of other factors. Character is your magic word, it seems to me—not just what they’ve done but how they’ve done it, and what they’ve learned from doing it.”

- Richard Norton Smith, presidential historian

“Does Experience Matter in a President?” p. 29
