How to become a world class politician -- get married to one

When I was a student (many moons ago) at Moody Bible Institute a popular rejoinder to someone claiming to be a Christian because he went to church was, "Well, living in a garage doesn't make you a car."

OK, so it's a bit dated, but you get the point. And we can modify it a bit now: being married to a politician doesn't make you a politician.

Sen. Clinton has made frequent claims about the experience she gained while being married to then-president Clinton. No man would make such a claim; he would be too ashamed, but shame seems to be a quality not easily found in the Clinton psyche. Comedian Chris Rock makes the point personally: being married to a comedian doesn't give you the ability to tell jokes. Is this such a complicated concept?
