Roll Them Bones

Mark Ambinder, here:
In a hard-changing interview with Charlie Rose tonight, Bill Clinton said Americans who are prepared to choose someone with less experience [i.e., Obama], are prepared to "roll the dice" about the future of America. "It's less predictable, isn't it? When is the last time we elected a president based on one year of service before he's running?"
Well, if the nation had followed similar logic in 1860, Stephen Douglas would've likely been elected President of the US. I still doubt that would've been a wiser course.
