Legal "President Barack Obama on Monday nominated former Recording Industry Association of America lawyer Donald Verrilli Jr. to serve as the nation's solicitor general. The solicitor general is charged with defending the government before the Supreme Court, and files friend-of-the court briefs in cases in which the government believes there is a significant legal issue. The office also determines which cases it would bring to the Supreme Court for review. Verrilli is best known for leading the recording industry's legal charge against music- and movie-sharing site Grokster. That 2003 case ultimately led to Grokster's demise when the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the RIAA's verdict." Cough.

That's funny, I've had friends at MIT vote for Obama...didn't realize it was 3rd tier.

Unfortunately there are those who confuse knowledge for wisdom - one only needs to look at religious fundamentalism/extremism and the number who have degrees in the hard sciences as one example of that dichotomy.

While I agree with you, I only brought up what he claims is a '3rd tier' university and someone who supported a particular candidate in a presidential election.

Knowledge does not equal wisdom, that is true.

*EDIT*
My point being, it doesn't matter what school you go to...if you vote the party line or only listen/watch to the political talking heads, you are not helping anyone.

That's because all your universities are 3rd tier ;)
