Obama’s inexperience

I’ve consistently been hearing this entire thing about how Obama is inexperienced, but this makes no sense comparatively. The current presidentserved a grand total of 6 years as Governor of Texas before being elected,¬† Giuliani (who will probably win the primary for the reps in my opinion) similarly has 2 terms as a mayor under his belt, but is also an experienced law maker. My point being arguments concerning Obama’s experience seem weak at best, like Giuliani he was an attorney, he was a state senator, and now is a US Senator. While other presidents comparatively have had been more experienced, Obama has actually spent more time in either state of federal positions than really anyone elected president¬†since Bush Sr. (who was vice prez, part of the house, and then President for one term)¬†Clinton served two governorships in Arkansas before being elected. Additionally, the dude has written two fairly popular books. While I’m not sure on Obama’s policies (he seems to have a subtle protectionism in some economic fields) I can think of few people running for president who actually have given us a better feel for their personalities.
