One Way to Look at It



My friend Tonya posted this today.

Educational Backgrounds

Barack Obama:
-Columbia University - B.A.
Political Science with a Specialization in
International Relations.
-Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Joseph Biden:
-University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A.
in Political Science.
-Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

vs.

John McCain:
-United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899.

Sarah Palin:
-Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
-North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
-University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism Matanuska
-Susitna College - 1 semester
-University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism.

Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in the land as well as our standing in the world.

Do I really need to add that I believe in education and how much, therefore, this says to me about our candidates?

I'm really concerned about McCain's class ranking in the military academy-- 894th out of 899? And while it's comforting to know Obama and Biden have degrees in political science, they're lawyers. Ugh. And Palin's educational background looks hauntingly like my own.
