    Not the pols.

    And, mind you, Clinton/Kerry/Biden also match quite well the definition of "lifers" in their own ways, looking out first for their own pension plan aka corporate board seats, book deals, lucrative slots on the rubber-chicken circuit, charitable foundations in their name, etc.

      It takes time to build up skills and learn from trial and error in life.

      I want someone who knows what the hell they are doing when they start running my electric grid or keeping the nukes secured or building 1000 foot bridges.

      At some point in time, everyone can't run around jumping job to job just because corporate america shoots the bullets. Security and stability are valuable components to a society at times.
