In the New Yorker, Amy Davidson offers a list of thirteen women who might make strong presidential candidates the next time around. Davidson notes that qualifications in politics are no longer required for the job, thus opening the field to successful people from all professions. Number six on the list is Sheryl Sandberg, who would also, should she run and win, be the first Jewish president. Writes Davidson: “Sandberg is ambitious and talented and a far better businessperson than Donald Trump.”
