what was her GPA?

Sarah Palin's GPA has not been released. It is known that she did not graduate with any honors or distinctions though.

oh yeah... another Dubya..

BTW? McCain barely made it out of the Naval Academy too...

and he was a legacy...

I think I remember something about Bush having a better GPA then Bill Clinton. What differnce did that make?


I think we should be more concerned about a V.P.
candidate who has plagerized his speeches and writings. What good are high marks in college if you then turn around cheat off someone else's paper.

Bush? hardly... i won't vote for any Clinton, but Bill was a Rhodes scholar... Bush was a "C" student.. and yeah, i voted for Bush in '00..but i wanted Mccain then..

as for the plagiarising? i think that was blown out of proportion...

Obamas grades are one of his stronger points..

he appears to be a well organised person both in speech and management decisions. but we really only have his campaign to look at for his management skills...

Doesn't look like the SAT will survive.

IT SHOULDN'T!

It measures obedience and submissiveness rather than intellect.

At best it is a joke, at worst, it denies a decent college to some of the best and brightest and fills the rolls instead with adherents of what was believed fifty years ago.

A Rhodes "scholar" is Just someone that did their graduate work in england. It's made to sound like something special but all you need is money to get into the school. Bush could have been a Rhodes "scholar" if he chose too.

And I find using someone elses words as your own to be very disturbing. I like joe biden but what original ideas can we believe he has?

please, i hate defending Clinton , but he was poor..

he didn't have dady's money to go..

and i beleive you should look up what a rhodes scholarship really is...

Bush might have been able to get one but not on merit...

my wife turned down a post-doc at Oxford (not the one in MS) because we could not afford the low pay...

Lockjaw,

You really really don't know much about the academic world and you have proved it.

You are much much better quoting the RNC's talking points.

Palin's college experience: 5 schools in 6 years before graduating with journalism degree
By Nicholas K. Geranios
Associated Press
Article Launched: 09/04/2008 03:23:46 PM PDT

SPOKANE, Wash. — Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin attended five colleges in six years before graduating from the University of Idaho in 1987.

Federal privacy laws prohibit the schools from disclosing her grades, and none of the schools contacted by The Associated Press could say why she transferred. There was no indication any of them were contacted as part of the background investigation of Palin by presidential candidate John McCain's campaign.

"Our office was not contacted by anyone," said Tania Thompson, spokeswoman for the University of Idaho in Moscow.

seriously Lock? the "charm" about Palin is the same "charm" as Dubya had...

he/she could be any of US.. and somehow that appeals to the idea that America can offer greatness to anybody.

but do we really want to put all of our fates in the hands of just anybody?
look where it got US this last time...

Note that dubya hid his college transcripts too and refused to answer question about his grades.

Now don't get me wrong. I think that is a protected right of any person, politician or not. Actually, Palin achieved the requirements for a degree and exactly how isn't a proper question.

My own record of grades isn't pretty. I started off doing quite poorly. Then, via work I did away from school, I earned a research fellowship in chemistry, which not only paid for my tuition and books, but provided money otherwise, so that for the first time ever, I knew that I could eat from day to day. That burden had been one that was way too much for me. From the point of getting that fellowship on, through two more years of the the BA, the MA, and the Ph.D. I made less than A in only only two courses.

You did, Lockstep, by the simple act of posting on a public forum. Or, are you too dim witted to understand that social reality.

I should have looked up the rhodes scholarship, my bad. I still don't see the significance of a persons GPA , twenty years ago.

Palin may have gone to several colleges before getting her degree. Determination and a need to be a success are a good trait to have.

McCain and Biden have both proven themselves to be able to get re-elected over and over again...

that counts for something... it shows good hiring practices and good administration of campaigns..

Palin and Obamma have much less track record, so we have to go on something...

I would like to know what they've been doing for the last 20 years. I wouldn't ask much more than did you graduate from college.
Graduating from college shows you have the staying power to complete something, not really much more than that.

Lockjaw,

You probably have a better source of information from your own than I do. However, though I have never personally tried it, I hear (mostly from some coal miners I've known) it is most uncomfortable for human beings under rocks.

You might find it agreeable, I cant say, but if you are interested, I could possibly find a rock big enough and in such a state it could be dropped on you. Might I advise that you duck your head and avoid the inevitable questions about the impact of two such hard objects being solved with the fracturing of the rock.

The real question does graduating from college mean you have the instincts to lead?

I've met people considered to be scholars or aleast consider themselves to be scholars, that I wouldn't follow across the street. Working as a college professor is an example of someone being an expert on what they've been taught but never appling it to the real world.
