The Democrats' bench strength

While many see Senator Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren's strong showing as the story from the Presidential Straw Poll at the 2014 Wisconsin Democrat Convention, I found the lackluster quality of the entire ballot noteworthy.  Who thinks Senators Amy Klobuchar or Kristen Gillibrand are presidential timber?  It makes me wonder about the criteria for inclusion on the straw ballot.  Was it any candidate with a vagina other than Hillary?
