Too Smart to Hold Office?
I received a very interesting e-mail this morning. The e-mail came with a link saying that many of today’s politicians did not do well in college. I graduated St. Thomas Francis University with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. While I wasn’t Magna Cum Laude, I wasn’t Mega Cum Stain either. My GPA was a respectable 3.54 with more A’s than C’s.
Those with poor grades include our current vice-president (I think it’s Joe Biden) and the former President and Vice President. Also included are a couple of my competitors (Rick Perry and Sarah Palin), and Wisconsin governor Scott Walker.
There aren’t a lot of popular politicians who are smart. There aren’t too many smart politicians who are popular (at least popular enough to win elections.) While I figure out which category I fit in, I will let you know that I am striving for being both smart and popular.
I will be heading to Wall Street this week. Rumor has it that there is a strong demographic group for me to campaign to. My work schedule is tomorrow and Wednesday, but Thursday should be light enough to make a trip to New York City. With some luck, I can inspire some smart people to run for office and we can stop electing idiots.
