    Define "smart" however you'd like, though, obviously, not all definitions are sound.

    Please be sure to explain your response.
    smart: (1) : the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations : reason; also : the skilled use of reason (2) : the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (as tests)

    I think we're equal.

    if you're saying what I think you are, then I can add "racist" to my list of reasons to lose respect for TD.

    I wouldn't say "never been accepted", but the fact that he's black didn't hurt things much. Even my much-beloved alma mater's law school has been proven to discriminate against the white male.

    As far as Obama, I'd say around equal, maybe with a slight edge toward myself in the fact that anyone with a remote economics background could tell that his policies were detrimental, if not disastrous, from square one.

    He isn't dumb, but I'm smarter than everyone.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    He obviously has a pretty remarkable academic record, better than mine (which is also pretty good by most people's standards), so in that sense no, I don't think I'm smarter than he is.

    I do think he demonstrates the same political naivete that I see in democrats in higher office generally. I'm not sure if that makes me smarter than he is, or just more or less cynical about government.

    Far too much attention to opinion; far too little to fact....and how does it matter anyway ???
    Yes "smartness" is important, buts its just a part in the makeup of the man..He has had to endure a ton of intolerance and disrespect which would have cracked me....
    IMO, "The Obama is smarter than I".
    BFD !

    So 53% of you think you're as smart or smarter than a law professor from a top 5 law school... So at least half the people on this board are like supreme court justices, major inventors, rhodes scholars, NASA scientists, etc? Who knew!?

    1. Intelligence isn't necessarily linked to extraordinary careers.
    2. I'm still young so...maybe.
