I would put a candidate's ethical track record ahead of their possession of an advanced degree:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has buzz. He has impressed conservative activists in Des Moines and is the front-runner for likely Republican Iowa caucus-goers, according to a Bloomberg Politics-Des Moines Register poll published this weekend.
Supporters say the 47-year-old has more diverse qualifications than the other Republicans: A non-Washington Republican who has won tough contests in a blue state, taken on labor unions and has appeal to the conservative faith community and the business constituency.
The incompetence of our privileged, educated elites is well documented. We are ill-served by an elite that goes to all of the right schools and knows all of the right people but makes a deliberate hash out of things. The greatest example of all, George W. Bush, had a college degree from Yale and an MBA from Harvard.
Scott Walker having no degree is worse than him having a pair of bought-and-paid for degrees from Harvard or Yale? I'm not following that logic, since many of our privileged elites cheat their way through college anyway.
Walker is inherently an unethical governor, one who has been under investigation for years. That alone should make him unfit for higher office.
