No college degree, does it matter?
0

By all accounts, (except for those that will never give the other party credit) Governor Scott Walker grades out an "A" for his work as Wisconsin Governor. He has done so well in fact that he is now the front runner for the Republican nomination for President in 2016.

But he may run into a problem with his campaign. Mr. Walker does not have a college degree. He spent three years at Marquette before leaving school for a job with the Red Cross. A job he said he could just not pass up.

So that begs the question, does his lack of a degree matter, or is executive experience and common sense enough.

Our current President graduated from Harvard and the President before him from Yale. Neither did or has done a bang up job as commander and chief. 

I say the College degree should make little if no difference. Intelligence and common sense are not magically part of a college degree. I just hope the lack of a college degree is not an issue in Walkers run for the President.

Give me common sense over book smart any day of the week. College isn't for everyone and shouldn't be...this country is lacking in people going into the trades careers. And for some people, college saddles them with huge debt in the form of student loans.

I gotta admit, Walker showed alot of ball standing up to who most people in the state thought were way overly compensated for the work they do. I just might have to give him a better look see as far as the presidency goes..unless he picks a dumbass running mate. If its Ryan, Wisconsin will become the land of sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere.

P.S. Has it ever happened where the President and Vice were from the same state ?

All things being equal I would rather have a president with a degree than one without.  At this point though Walker has amassed a body of work he can be judged on, so the lack of a degree is less important.

 

What bugs me are the people that thought GWB's, Romney's and Walker's college years were really important, but that Al Gore's and Obama's were not.  So much of this is just partisan BS.

Agnew was pretty bad, worse than Quayle IMO.  I don't agree with Biden's politics much of the time but he's better than people give him credit for.  The last six years would have gone better if Biden was president instead of Obama.

Worst vice presidential running mate ever:

She was a mistake I will have to admit that. She is about to launch a new reality show, should be interesting.
