Hutchison: Running a State Not Enough for White House
Kay Bailey Hutchison says she doesn’t think experience as a governor necessarily means someone is prepared to be president. The retiring Texas Republican senator spoke today with NBC political director Chuck Todd on The Daily Rundown.
“Governors don’t make the best presidents,” Hutchison said. “That’s my opinion. And it’s because they don’t have the foreign policy experience and they have to learn on the job.”
But Hutchison said former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would make a good president because of his business experience. Hutchison also said she once considered running for president herself before she had children, but she said the timing wasn’t right.
