  •  If all Presidents are naive, then there's no (0+ / 0-)

    point in describing any that way because their "naivete" is really a moot point.  I think the more appropriate characterization is "inexperienced."  Many Presidents have attested that nothing prepared any of them for the rigors of the Presidency.

    I think it's absurd to describe any person who succeeds in being elected to world's most powerful office as "naive" or "innocent".    I honestly don't know why anybody would do that.

    •  I think one (0+ / 0-)

      can be tough as nails, smart as blue blazes, and still be naive and or innocent to certain experiences in life.  We must just agree to disagree.

      I do appreciate you adding in to the discussion, even if we do disagree. I think your intentions and passions are as fair as mine.
