I finally sat down and read her bio since a faction here seems convinced she is the most pure, powerful and perfect human being ever to live, and with a flick of her finger can fix everything, and frankly was so underwhelmed by her qualifications for anything but what she's doing that I became disgusted.

But President? She has nothing that makes her an exceptional choice for that exception the hero worship of a tiny band of progressives.
