Sorry, Pete Buttigieg, but South Bend hasn't prepared you to be president

Editors, Washington Examiner

The role that Buttigieg served in South Bend was a good one, which anyone should be proud to fill, but it is simply fantasy to suggest that the skill set he learned there prepared him for the White House. Sen. Amy Klobuchar had a point when she said that no woman with qualifications as thin as Buttigieg's would be standing on the presidential debate stage. The amazing thing, however, is that even a man with such thin qualifications would be suffered to stand there. America has elected inexperienced presidents before. When the former mayor claims that his service in South Bend has prepared him for the presidency, one can only wonder whether he's been spending too much time at the Linebacker.
