There has been a lot of debate surrounding the experience each candidate has.  I have no opinions today.  Just a recap of each candidate’s resume recounting what they’ve been doing since high school.  You be the judge.  I think Biden might be the winner in national leadership experience (I lied about not having an opinion) but that is just what the numbers appear to say to me.

The Presidential Candidates:

Obama

  • 1982-1983 Columbia University
  • 1983 Business International Corporation
  • 1984 New York Public Interest Research Group
  • 1985-1988 Community Organizer for Chicago – Director of Developing Communities
  • 1988-1991 Harvard Law – President of Harvard Law Review
  • 1992-2004 Taught at University of Chicago
  • 1996-2004 Illinois State Senator
  • 2004-present US Senator (IL)

McCain

  • 1958 graduated US Naval Academy
  • 1958-1981 Navy
  • 1982-1986 House of Representatives (AZ)
  • 1986-present US Senator (AZ)

The Vice-Presidential Candidates:

Palin

  • 1983-1986 University of Idaho
  • 1988-1992 Sports reporter, Fishing business with husband
  • 1992-1996 City Council Member of Wasilla Alaska
  • 1996-2002 Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska
  • December 2006-present – Governor of Alaska

You didn’t mention their foreign policy experience though. Sarah Palin definitely has the most since she lives so close to Russia. McCain also has quite a bit being from Arizona, that is only a jaunt away from Mexico. He’s probably also an expert on immigration. How much could Biden and Obama really know?
