Will there ever be another non-Ivy league president?

Seems to me the chair is reserved for the elite.

Strange that "smart" people can FUBAR a job so badly.

The previous two presidents got in through nepotism and being a minority.

Either of them would have not gotten in on their own.

I hate Obama, but I'm uncomfortable with the assumption that he was only admitted because of his skin color. We don't really know this.

He was registered in Columbia, as a foreign student. That weighs heavily on ivy league acceptance.

If everybody would stop crying about Herbert Hoover, some Stanford people would have a shot at the job.

Could you imagine someone from the rant in office?

It'd at least be entertaining I guess

Don't you know? Poli board logic dictates any minority in an elite position is there because of affirmative action or quotas. DUH.

It is not that exclusive, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, that was a pretty good run for the non-ivy league.

That was a good run. And it came to a big halt when H.W. got in office. Which also happened to be when we started sticking our nose in any Middle Eastern fight we could.

Barack Sr. had a masters degree from Harvard. So it could be two straight cases of nepotism.

I'd like to see a non-Ivy. The last two administrations should have taught us that.
