Do you think that prior experience as state governor is a must have requirement for preisdetial candidate?
I think it is. There is very big difference between representing one's constituence and administrative CEO job. For example, the first task of the president would be to assemble the cabinet. In Senate you learn to trade favors with important people and thus to place influence and politcal connections of a person above his/her leadership and skills. In case a candidate already has such executive experience, at least his record could be examined.

Obviously not. Lincoln and Washington were never state governors, and they turned out ok. Taft, Eisenhower, Kennedy and the first Bush were never governors either. In reality, lots of our presidents have been successful without prior experience as governors.

It helps. It is not a requirement.

I think having previous government experience is a good thing but shouldn't be a requirement. Previous experience as a governor doesn't neccessarily mean that he/she was a good or effective one.
