    •  Ya, Bill Clinton, Dubya, Carter, Obama all lost (6+ / 0-)

      Bill Clinton ran for a U.S. House seat in Arkansas in the 70's and lost.

      Dubya ran for a seat in Texas and lost.

      I believe Jimmy Carter lost multiple primaries for various offices in Georgia.

      Obama challenged incumbent Bobby Rush for a House seat and lost in a landslide, 59-30%.

      All of them became President.
