06/07/2005: After School Images...
The Chicago Tribune has republished this most “interesting” Tid-Bit from Michael Kranish (Boston Globe) about the GPA of both Sen. Kerry and the Prez.: Kerry, Bush had similar grade average while at Yale.
I’ve always been of the opinion that it’s not how WELL you do in school, but WHAT you make of it later.
But unfortunately the Karl Rove scripted and memorized sound-bite driven, fake bonhomie, Texan “gentleman rancher” image cultivated by our Prez had much more cache with the electorate than the more “intellectual” but oftimes carefully obtuse Kerry pearls of un-wisdom.
So, perhaps even that simple generalization has to go by the wayside in our upside down, sliding backwards world. And clearly there was naught but a hair’s-breath of difference between them on the academic scale to account for it all.
