We just discovered that Governor Scott Walker, in company with Abe Lincoln, Harry Truman, Steve Job, and Bill Gates does not have a college degree. The horror! (In case you wonder if I have a dog in this fight: Yes, I completed college, Cum Laude!)
The real problem is that Gov. Walker looks like a Republican candidate that could eat Hillary’s lunch with his eyes closed. He has tangible accomplishments; she does not. She lies; he does not. She often sounds absurd; he does not (so far). Her diction changes with her audience; she even talks black in a black church, N. S.! The governor is always dignified in public.
I wish he would offer a deal: I will make my college grades public if the president will do the same, at last.
Incidentally, I spend thirty years in academia. I came out convinced that a university education may be important for average young people. For the brilliant, it’s mostly a waste of time, I think.
