    You are high if you think there is any kind of comparison between some cheerleader and a guy actually trying to get **** done.

    Anyways librep I thought of that to, but I'm willing to take my chances. I think America could handle 2 years of her (she will fall out somehow within her 4 she HAS TO) if elected.
    You are high if you think that Obama actually had a resume in 2008 that made him the most qualified man in the country to be president or more qualified than say Hillary Clinton or John McCain

    I gotta say, I love Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindal. Those guys get things done. I'd vote for them over Obama, just to see if they could do it (and their track record is behind them for that).

    Truman didn't have a college degree. Reagan was hardly a Columbia Phi Beta Kappa. Those are two of the best presidents in the modern era.

    Obama is not more educated than Clinton who was a Rhodes Scholar holding a Yale Law Degree
    Obama was not better educated that Jerry Ford who was a top student (and all american) at michigan and then a top student at Yale Law School or Nixon who was top of his class at Whittier (He was accepted at Yale but Whittier was more affordable) and then graduated at the top of his class at Duke law or even W who had degrees from Yale and Harvard B school.

    I'm mixed on Pawlenty. He did balance the state budget without raising taxes (though some of his methods, read unallotment and 'fees', for doing so were questionable), but it's projected that the state is going to experience yet another budget shortfall. MinnesotaCare was good, but cutting funding from health and human services was probably not a great move considering that roughly 35,000 people could potentially lose their GMAC coverage. Overall, he is probably better than some of the other options that have been mentioned.

    I would love to see those actual grades. Please provide them along with evidence that no white man gained admission with the same record.

    Obama didn't even make honors at Columbia which cut off around a 3.3 average. I knew several hundred people who applied to harvard law-at least 150 in my class at Yale and many who I met when I went to Law school. While I cannot prove that sometime somewhere a white male with the same credentials as Obama never got into Harvard law, I never heard of any white male with less than an A minus average from Yale or an equivalent (Amherst, Williams, Princeton, harvard, Stanford, Dartmouth or MIT) getting into HLS

    the year I applied they supplied a graph. One vector was GPA. each gradation had a .15 range so the top box was 3.85 to 4.0

    The LSAT was the next one. the top line was (I believe its been almost 30 years) 780-800. At HLS the top box on the grid was for anyone over a 3.8 and in the top 1% on the LSAT. acceptance percentages in that group was fairly good. maybe 55% chance. go one line down or one line back (ie top board scores but say a 3.75) you had less than a 50-50 chance of acceptance. Go down to a 3.2 and there were a few acceptances. I was told by the Harvard Dean of Admissions when I met with her at YLS in 1980 that those were "special cases" (ie minorities). The year I applied to Yale and Harvard, Columbia and Cornell Law schools (among others) the black student with the highest credentials who was accepted had scores that NO WHITE male was admitted with and any of those four schools
