President Obama flew Hillary Clinton to Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday to tell an enthusiastic crowd that no one has ever been more qualified to occupy the Oval Office — not even him, apparently.

He might have a point. Though both spent a little bit of time in the waiting room they call the Senate, Clinton went on to serve as secretary of state, where she was responsible for making life-or-death decisions that neither had faced before. You don’t know what it’s like to make life or death decisions until you’ve done it, Obama testified.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn chimed in to agree that Clinton certainly does have experience when it comes to making life-or-death decisions. Clinton failed miserably, but that still counts as experience, right?

President Obama took a shot at Donald Trump, whose experience consists of sitting behind a desk and tweeting.

But even the Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi cleared Clinton of all wrongdoing in connection with those deaths in Benghazi (at least that’s how CNN reported it), just as the FBI cleared her of all wrongdoing in connection with her extremely careless mishandling of classified materials (just ask Sally Kohn).

Using that logic, it’s a wonder that President Obama didn’t go on and on about Clinton’s wealth of experience gained as secretary of state.
