A short voter's guide for those who believe, as I've come to, that an Ivy League education is synonymous with hubris, at least where politics is concerned.
Michelle Bachmann: Winona State University, Oral Roberts Law, William & Mary Law
Herman Cain: Morehouse College ("the black Harvard"), Purdue.
Newt Gingrich: Emory, Tulane.
Jon Huntsman: Penn.
Gary Johnson: University of New Mexico.
Ron Paul: Gettysburg College, Duke Medical.
Tim Pawlenty: University of Minnesota.
Mitt Romney: Stanford, Brigham Young, Harvard Law / Business School.
Rick Santorum: Penn State, Pittsburgh.
If he chooses to run, Rick Perry attended Texas A & M. I do not believe that Sarah Palin will run, but if she does, she attended the University of Idaho. If and when the Libertarians nominate a candidate, I will address his or her educational demerits. Should he choose to run as an independent, Michael Bloomberg attended Johns Hopkins and Harvard Business School.
President Obama, of course, attended Occidental College, Columbia, and Harvard Law.
By way of full disclosure, I attended an American state university, as well as a university that has been described as the Yale of the Soviet Union (which was also a state university). I have no intention of running for dog catcher.
