A storied military career should be a prerequisite. You understand the world just a bit better when you've seen children bathe in their own shit and carry around their dead mothers arm. You also have a bit of discipline and probably no Twitter.
Settle down, Francis. I don't see how PTSD is a requirement either. The discipline I see in former military members is actually commendable, but it doesn't make for dealing with topics that range outside of the 1/3rd of that spectrum. Human death and dismemberment isn't normal, shouldn't be normal, and certainly isn't a fucking prerequisite for leading a country.
This is the issue, everyone wants to be the authority on what our president's qualifications should be, yet no one knows exactly what that job entails. I can easily tell you what doesn't fall into the bucket, but what does is a lot more difficult. Babies carrying their mother's dismembered arms is not part of it though, I can say that with certainty.
We're not in Nam.
