There is so many things wrong here. The president usurping a college graduation to make a political campaign speech. A man pushing a woman to the side. Shouldnt women be upset at this? Shouldnt voters be upset at the abuse of position?http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/04/us...tion.html?_r=1
An Obama administration official confirmed on Friday that the White House had called Barnard to offer the president as the commencement speaker.
A month ago, Barnard College announced that Jill Abramson, the executive editor of The New York Times, would be its graduation speaker, but those plans changed with the call from the White House. Ms. Spar said that Ms. Abramson had said she would be happy to speak at Barnard in the future.
The college’s last three commencement speakers were Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, the actress Meryl Streep and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
