Lack of experience can be a problem

In 2000, with only 6 years in political office after a series of failed business deals, George W. Bush turned to a senior GOP politician to help pick the VP candidate. Remember?

In the spring of 2000, while still serving as Halliburton's CEO, [Dick Cheney] headed George W. Bush's Vice-Presidential search committee. After reviewing Cheney's findings however, Bush surprisingly asked Cheney himself to join the Republican ticket. Cheney resigned as CEO on July 25, and put all of his corporate shares and stock options into a charitable trust.

Just shows what a lack of experience will yield....
