"Should candidates sit some sort of examination? IQ test?"

This would have eliminated George W. Idiot.

"Theoretically it shouldn't be necessary, because unqualified candidates should never even get through the primary elections, let alone the final presidential election."

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups; AKA, the Republican nat'l convention.

"Leaders of parties work their way up over years."

Unfortunately, this is part of the problem. The longer these people seem to be in power, the more corrupt they become. If ever there was a time in history for the phrase "Throw the Rascals out!" it is now, and I mean ALL U.S. politicians. We need to trade in "politicians" for Statesmen, and fast!
