Those of us who lived in Illinois during Bruce Rauner's governorship knew better than to believe that a businessman would necessarily be a good choice as a chief executive.

I'm not totally convinced that a good businessman couldn't be a good president, but it's neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition. Running a government is very different from running a business, both in terms of means and ends. (And Trump was never a good businessman.)
