It kinda of depends on what you mean by "doing something". Serving as a Senator seems like a huge responsibility to me.
Hundreds of people have served as Senator but have not made a major impact or drafted any major legislation. Don't get me wrong being a Senator is a huge responsiblity because of the power of your vote.
Serving as 1st Lady is too.
What does that have to do with being president or ready to be president.
Getting your law degree and working as a lawyer and serviing on various boards and making numerous appearances in public is also doing something.
Again what does this have to do with becoming president or being a successful Senator. And yes there are very successful Senators on both sides.
Sorry if I'm not too persuaded by vague claims about not doing something. I'll tell one thing: Clinton and Obama and probably McCain all have the intellect for the job--which is more than I can say for the current resident.
Typical Liberal going back to bashing Bush. I don't agree with him 50% or more of the time but what makes you say that they have more Ingeligence than him, is it his public speaking ability or that you don't agree with him. I personally don't agree with Obama or Clinton but feel they are smart individuals. You don't get to the position that Bush holds by being an idiot.
