Blind poll on preparedness of losing Presidential nominees.  If you can easily tell who someone is, try to ignore their ideology, personality etc. and vote strictly based off of prior experience.

The problem with this way of doing is that a person cannot evaluate the success of their experience.  Just holding a position doesn't make someone qualified.

No, certainly don't get excited. It gets even worse after that. Like the Murphy's Law quote, "Things can always get worse..."
