RE: Should One Have a College Degree To Run For President?

Well, I guess that Bill Gates, Larry Ellison and┬áSteve Jobs weren’t smart enough to start their companies. then. They all left college without graduating.

This notion that people are unqualified for success because they never shelled out a hundred grand for a piece of paper is ludicrous. Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of our greatest Presidents despite ONE YEAR of formal education.

Intelligence is demonstrated by a drive to continually think, challenge assumptions, and push yourself to learn. It is not shown by a degree. As I have told many people, there are a LOT of people that have degrees they earned with a 1.6 GPA.
