On the question at hand, it depends on her qualifications.
No beer option, so I didn't vote.

Fifty years ago I worked for a couple of years in Taejon, South Korea. The city was a backwater at best as was true of other large cities, Seoul and Pusan included. Beggars were everywhere, as were smiling children imploring, 'Chewing gum, mister?'. There were no paved streets outside Seoul, no public transportation, no nothing. I doubt that there was a millionaire in the country but for a couple of "smart" politicians.
Known Korean billionaires according to Forbes analysis units include:
Lee Kun Hee (Samsung) $2.9 billion
Chung Mong Koo (Hyundai) $2.2 billion
Lee Myung Hee (Shinsegae) $1.8 billion
Lee Jay Yong (Samsung) $1.7 billion
Yong Keu Cha (Kazakhmys) $1.3 billion
Chung Mong Joon (Hyundai) $1.3 billion
Suh Kyung Bae (Amorepacific) $1.1 billion
Forbes lists thirty multi-millionaires.
South Korea is a wealthy, prosperous state that manufactures cars, semiconductors and cellphones. Annual per capita income is about $32,000, 18 times higher than in the North. Drive down any street in Seoul, and you’ll see a Starbucks on most every corner, across the street from a Krispy Kreme, next door to a Calvin Klein Underwear store.
The really good news is that young people there want the US out. So do I.
