I also WON a NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP in my senior year (I hope I capitalized that to your satisfaction). So what? A lot can happen between high school and your mid-50s. And I would argue what happened after high school is more important than what happened during high school.
Anyway, just to be factually correct: Al Gore graduated form Harvard. He then went to Vanderbilt Divinity School, got Fs in five of the eight classes he took, and dropped out. He then entered, and dropped out of, Vanderbilt Law School. Bush graduated from Yale, then went to Harvard and got an MBA.
Not that I think their educational careers are anywhere near the most important thing to look at when choosing a candidate; some of the dumbest people I know are Ivy League grads, and some of the smartest people I know never went to college at all. But if you're going to lay it on the line, lay it ALL on the line.posted by aaron at 3:37 PM on September 20, 2000
