Rangel Says Qualifications Don't Matter

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), "who is fighting what appears to be the toughest re-election battle of his life," told the New York Observer that "qualifications" aren't what matter in the race.

Said Rangel: "It's clear that now the legislative body, instead of just legislation, has to work out a strategy to support the president of the United States. It's also clear that one of the people that the president lauds for doing the work, whether it's the economic recovery bill, or the affordable health bill, it's me. And so, I don't think the question in the elections is-I don't really think- is who's the best qualified. As a matter of fact that's not the issue."

He added: "I don't think I have to share with you, or anybody else, as to what the issues are. All I'm saying is that it's not qualifications."
