McConnell on Trump's NATO remark: "a rookie mistake"

I guess there is nothing wrong with having a rookie in the oval office.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJULY 21, 2016, 4:10 P.M. E.D.T.

WASHINGTON Alarm and condemnation erupted Thursday from European capitals, the White House and leaders of Donald Trump's own party after the Republican presidential nominee suggested the United States might abandon its NATO military commitments if he were elected president.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who backed Trump at the party's national convention only two days earlier, said he totally disagreed with the statement but was willing to "chalk it up to a rookie mistake."

McConnell called NATO "the most successful military alliance in the history of the world," in a Facebook interview with The New York Times.

Why isn't Merkley on the short list?

It's just not true. HRC is qualified, but is not the most qualified ever.

Richard Nixon; the only president to have served as a congressman, senator, and vice-president before being elected. Al Gore should have been the second (LBJ doesn't count since he wasn't elected).

Buchanan; 10 years a congressman, 10 years a senator, 4 years ambassador to Russia, 4 years as ambassador to England, 4 years secretary of state.

Martin Van Buren; senator, governor of New York, ambassador to England, Secretary of State, Vice-President.
