Ayotte: I’m More Ready to Be President than Obama Was in 2008

Senator Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.), who is often mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick for Mitt Romney, compared her experience level to Barack Obama’s in 2008 on Meet the Press yesterday.

“I have, some would say, better experience than Barack Obama had when he was a senator and ran, having been the chief law enforcement officer of my state. I serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee,” Ayotte said. “But again, what it comes down to for me, it’s serving New Hampshire.”
