Presidents, Senators and House Reps. need to be scientists, like Franklin, or Jefferson, or Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Unlike Clinton, Bush, Obama or Johnny Cash.

Government officials need to hold degrees in Agriculture, or Chemistry, or Physics, or Mathematics or Medicine or Economics (philosophy might be acceptable too)
Not on Law or Political-Science.
