<p>None of that translates into being a good world leader.</p>

<p>“She served as her husband’s political advisor”</p><p>

<br/></p><p>Along with dozens of other people who actually knew what the heck they were talking about and had some sort of actual qualification to be a political advisor.</p>

<p>“She’s charming”</p>

<p>Irrelevant.</p>

<p>“Qualified”</p>

<p>Literally HOW???</p>
