Qualifications for Governor

In a brilliant piece about the presumptive Democrat nominee for governor of New Jersey, Enlighten asks,

Yea, we know the Senator is rich but, is that the only qualification for the office?

Enlighten also provides plenty of information to answer the question. My take: while being rich isn't the only qualification for the office of governor, it is Corzine's only qualification. His complete lack of effort in presenting a position on the state's financial situation (his supposed field of expertise) should disqualify him. Maybe, someday, the media will notice this as well.
