dems and ivies August 5, 2007Posted by AP in 2008 Elections, politics.
this article from realclearpolitics (a conservative news blog) points out that John Edwards
didn’t go to Harvard or Yale…. you’d have to go back to 1984 to find a Democratic nominee (Walter Mondale) who didn’t attend one of those elite universities for either college or graduate school.
any thoughts on whether this is evidence of a network effect in party politics, or simply an indicator of candidate ability?
