My lifetime begins at Reagan, so I don't know.
George HW was pretty qualified, but maybe not as much as Hillary would/could be.
If I go back to 1950, I think Richard Nixon has to be strongly considered. Congressman, senator, vice-president (for 8 years) and the leader of his party for ****ing ever. Much like Hillary, I think he was almost "owed" the presidency if he wanted it. Guy put in so much service at the federal level, but he also absolutely had the chops for the job, too. That separates him from some dumbass Ted Stevens who just served a really long time.
