Presidential Pool

Why does a presidential nomination have to come from such a small pool of politicians? For instance, George Bush Sr. was President. Then a few years later, when looking for a new president, they said, "I don't know. You think his son will do it?" Similarly, Bill Clinton was President. And now, "Hmm...maybe his wife can be President?" Seriously? Out of 300,000,000 Americans, we're forced to resort to sons and spouses because we can't think of anyone else. What the heck? Why couldn't someone like Steve Jobs run for President? What experience does politics give you for running a country besides running a country like a politician?
