    depends, I'm tired of academics, I may not like Walker's politics, but he's a self made man, I would probably vote for him over Hillary, certainly over Warren.

    some day the democrats will get smart and start nominating people like Dingell or Howard Dean etc and stop nominating these urban academics

    well I can dream anyway.
    The book's not worth reading. Scott Walker isn't worth voting for. Check back for more single sentence reviews!

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    I don't really have a problem with Walker's lack of a degree. He has enough of a public record on which he is evaluated, that its possible to form an accurate assessment of him. I don't think a college degree is necessary to complete that picture.

    Having said that, I definitely don't agree with the opinions of some who treat a college education almost as a negative in a person.

    So are you saying that he spent some time in college, but didn't have what it took to actually complete a program?

    Bachelors degrees usually take four years to complete. A presidential term also takes four years. Hmm.

    How about Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Dell, John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Sheldon Adleson, John Makey and Matt Mulenweg. They didn't finish college either.
    Were any of those people president?

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    I don't have a problem with his lack of a degree. I would be interested in why he didn't finish, but there could be a host of good reasons. I worked with some outstanding computer programmers that did not have a degree. They had a high degree of intelligence and they were committed to life long learning. They picked up books, read them, tried it out, and taught themselves what they needed to know.

    I will go with a high degree of intelligence every time.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    Education is kind of important to me. I couldn't vote for somebody who lacked a high school diploma. Lacking a college education and being president doesn't seem right to me.

    That seems foolish. What was he reasoning?
