Who should the Democratic nominee for President in 2020 be?
As someone whose highest-level of political experience is
as a mayor
, Pete Buttigieg lacks a reputation for federal leadership.
Given then current POTUS, we've clearly established precedent that political experience at all, let alone any particular level, is not a prerequisite.
This is arguably a positive. Given the abysmal public perception of the Federal government,
(which traditionally serves as a soft prerequisite), having a perspective from outside D.C. could be valuable.
Being a mayor still provides valuable experience which would be useful for being President.
