Sen. Leiberman is calling his Democratic Presidential opponents rookies who aren't ready to be President.

What he's not saying is that the President is an executive office, for which a legislative career does not necessarily prepare one. So in a sense, Senator Leiberman is as much a rookie as his opponents may be, Gov. Dean and Gen. Clark.
