How much experience is enough?

Shelly Yacimovich is probably best known in this country for her term as the hostess of HaKol Diburim, a popular radio talk show on Israel Radio that talks mostly politics and current events from 10:00 am until Noon Sunday through Thursday. In 2006, she quit the radio to run for the Knesset and won a seat as a member of the Labor party. Recently, she became the party chairwoman, and has brought the party back to being (a distant) second in the current polls. In the upcoming elections, she says that she hopes to replace Prime Minister Netanyahu. When asked about her qualifications and experience to be Prime Minister, here's what she had to say.
The former journalist rejected concerns that she lacked the political experience to lead the country, saying US President Barack Obama had less government experience than she did when he was elected in 2008.
What could go wrong?
