    First of all, he's not getting the nomination. However now that I'm thinking about it, it might be an advantage for the GOP to improve its image of being the party of the elite to the party of regular folks.

    To answer the question, it wouldn't matter to me either way.

    At Harvard, once again Bush's grades and test scores were not at all outstanding, however Bush was accepted. I don't know that his father paid anything for Bush to be accepted into Harvard Business School. It was more likely that the Bush family name and power were more than enough to secure Bush's admission. We can safely assume the Bush was not accepted to Harvard on his own merits.
    But then there is a big difference between the family name getting your foot in the door and daddy buying you a diploma. Once Bush was accepted he was on his own. Al Gore did not have terrific grades either. And I don't think anyone would dispute that Gore had his senator daddy's help getting admitted to Harvard.

    Sounds like he didn't learn much about ethics at Harvard.

    Well Howard is entitled to his opinion and I don't agree with him on that.

    I am entitled to mine as well and I believe college is not strictly nessecary. I don't hate college nor am I against education, but I have no problem supporting someone who is.a proven success without it.

    Nobody will know until after the election but I'll predict that Scott Walker won't be the next president of the USA.

    A college degree does not in any way mean somebody is smart or capable, if it did, a recent graduate from law school would walk right in to an established firm and get a high paying job.

    Does that ever happen or does that person need experience to prove themselves first?
    Nope, and the truth is no one cares where your degree came from. Most of the time anyway. If you stand accused of a crime you're going to look for a lawyer with a record of winning cases. If you are looking at two defense attorneys, and one has a degree from Harvard but never one a single jury trial, and the other is a county seat (that means he passed the bar but never graduated law school) lawyer with an 80% win rate who are you going to choose?

    He won't be 2016, but 2020, 2024, 2028 I wouldn't be surprised if he is elected sometime

    And I'll go out on a limb and predict you also will not be POTUS.

    I'd vote for shrubnose before I'd vote for Walker.
