    I didn't know that. I must admit I'm not too familiar with this guy. I know that he's being talked about a lot, but I have only seen him in a couple of news clips. The one clip I did see of him talking at a recent forum in January, he sounded a bit like a conservative robot.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    is the education more important, or the piece of parchment granted in the end saying you stuck it out for four years?

    what do i want in a president?

    1. raw intelligence....has to be able to digest the information, and make good choices
    2. Leadership....has nothing to do with education, but whether or not you would follow the man/woman in their endeavors
    3. Compassion....
    4. Ethics.......knows right and wrong, and will make the right choices

    A college education is wonderful.....i have one.....but it isnt the end all, be all requirement to running this great nation

    Just like Bill Gates. It's a non starter. He's accomplished enough in his career to know that he can handle the job.

    I would rather have

    1) Raw intelligence tempered/enhanced by a diligent focused advanced education
    2) Intelligent leadership: Anyone can lead, not everyone can lead smartly (it's a mix between natural ability and education)
    3) Compassion and ethics...ok, no disagreement there.

    It's certainly not the end all be all, but if it comes down to two guys that seem pretty similar in their abilities, I'm probably going to chose the one that has a higher education.
