IRA - Dividend distributions

Question - is it possible to withdraw "dividends only" from a Traditional IRA or Rollover Account, and not be taxed as Ordinary Income, ie,
have dividends generated in an IRA distributed to owner at the Qualified Dividend 15% tax rate.

I agree.

It's the same with cap gains. Taxed at 15% in taxable accounts, and as regular income when withdrawn from an IRA.
Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
Enough private pension and SS income to cover all needs
