Does that mean that they make good administrators? That is, after all, part of the job description for President.

We used to have a lot of experienced military men run for office and win.
What happened to that?
Do we need a general in office right now to deal with these ISIS dirtbags?
Throughout history generals have served as great presidents. They have wonderful leadership qualities and understand the battlefield.
It seems as if none of them are interested these days.
The United States Constitution names the President of the United States the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. armed forces. Many Presidents, however, also served in the military before taking office.
As you can see many of our greatest presidents were war time generals and officers in positions of leadership.
Are they less susceptible to corruption?
What do you think?
