Oh, I dunno. Howard Dean is highly educated. He’s a medical doctor of some kind. Who knows, maybe he’s a good medical doctor, though I assume also that he’s an ex-medical doctor.
However, as a man of politics, as a pundit and commentator, the highly-educated Howard Dean is a blithering idiot.
In my lifetime (some are saying in the past century) by far the greatest President — pretty much everyone admits it, even those who didn’t like him at the time — has been the most humbly educated: Ronald Reagan.
History hails Reagan now for his wisdom and foresight, for his clear-eyed understanding of what was needed, both internationally and domestically, for America to reverse course from the gloom, decay and despair of the Jimmy Carter years. During the Carter years, and the 1980 Presidential campaign, and all through his presidency, Reagan was scornfully, haughtily derided as stupid, under-educated, lazy, detached.
Nowadays, the press stand in awe of whom? Why of the current occupant of the White House — for his intelligence, his wisdom, his preternatural ability to see further, more clearly … better than you and I … for his sheer awesomeness. All while everything Obama touches turns to cow flops.
Frankly, a lack of a college degree likely makes Scott Walker by far the most qualified to be President.
