    I can't just say no? It has nothing to do with his world experience.

    Leaders lead. They surround themselves with people who when directed get the results that leader is looking for. That is what you elect. I will not be voting for Scott Walker, but it has nothing to do with his education.

    Here are some other college dropouts who seemed to do ok.

    Before you go to the link, please don't be surprised that there is 100% chance you are using a device to get there that was impacted by a college dropout.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    I wonder if a guy who couldnt finish college, and then goes into career politician mode will value higher education as much as most people?


    It appears that he does not value it for Wisconsin.

    This seems like a pretty relevant piece of information when regarding him as a potential Presidential candidate.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Thats right- the GOP will stand tall for the principle that some college is good enough for anyone! That fancy pants education is for sissies!

    Good luck with that.
    I think I am pretty good standing on the notion that the average American is capable of self-governance. Enjoy spending a cycle defending elitism.

    Love how elitism is now defined as graduating college.

    You're a piece of work, man.

    To be fair, you are not even close to being the most extreme person on DP, either.
    You're quite uninformed opinion about me is both compliment and insult. But thanks for the compliment part I guess.

    But what does it profit us to take a middle-of-the-road position between right and wrong? Between profitable and detrimental? Between reality and falseness? How is it extreme to want to elect a President with proven track record for success? When it is obvious that electing an unqualified Barack Obama has created far more problems for the country than anything good that has happened during his administration? When a Hillary Clinton has just as dismal a track record and absolutely no significant successes in anything to show on her resume? When an Elizabeth Warren is pretty much a carbon copy of he existing President in wanting to expand powers of government? When Joe Biden is Joe Biden?

    Given his already impressive track record, which of these would be more likely to do a credible job in Washington than Scott Walker would likely do?

    But how easy will it be for the Democrats and a left leaning media be to make him look unqualified or unsuitable because he doesn't have a college degree?

    Not an insult at all, just an observation. There is a difference. If you take it as an insult, that's probably more telling than you want to admit.

    Anyway, I've also been on record in this thread that the whole lack of a degree thing is a non-issue, and have stated clearly that track record is much more relevant. College simply isn't for everybody. College is also zero guarantee that a person is competent and capable.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    can you give some quantified metrics that you think illustrate Walker's exemplary track record?

    He's won how many elections by the voters in Wisconsin? That's about all the quantified metrics anyone without a bias and agenda needs to know.

    well, so has Obama if that's your metric for determining someone's track record and qualifications for on the job success.
