When Experience Counts…

It is interesting to note that while history shows that numerous Senators have tried to win the presidency (and still are), only two sitting U.S. Senators, each with 14 years of service as an elected official, ever attained that goal. They were Warren G. Harding and John F. Kennedy.

James Garfield was in a similar boat. He was a U.S. Congressman who was elected to the Senate in 1880 and he was also elected to the presidency the same year. He chose the presidency and was inaugurated on March 4, 1881. Unfortunately, he was shot on July 3, 1881 and died  two months later.

Could history be telling us something?
