National Post has an article on a recent book which posits that Bush really is not dumb at
Bush was Phi Beta Kappa at Yale, has degrees from both Yale and Harvard, always got pretty good grades (even in junior and senior high) and has a measured I.Q in the 120's.
Gore, Kerry, Senator Bill Bradly and pundit Michael Moore are apparantly not quite up
to Mr.Bush's intellectual hights.
Their scolastic records indicate far lesser brainpower is shared among the liberal elite.
Yet Gore, with high school Bs and Cs (his only As were in art), got into Harvard in part because (like other politicians’ sons, including a raft of Kennedys) his father was a famous senator. At Harvard, Gore’s grades did not improve. In his sophomore year he earned a D, a C-minus, two Cs, two C-pluses and one B-minus. He was in the bottom fifth of his class his first two years in school. Later he flunked out of divinity school (failing five of his eight classes) and dropped out of Vanderbilt University Law School. Gore was once asked (after having served in the U.S. Senate for several years) to name his favourite president. “President Knox,” he replied."
Both the Clintons's are accepted as being highly intelligent.
I wonder how Obama actually rates?
