Bush is a Yale man. He only got his MBA from Harvard after his illustrious stint in the Air National Guard. Despite the fake accent and constant brush clearing in Crawford, he is and always will be, a Noreaster Elitist.
Thank you for confirming that Bush received an MBA from Harvard. :) Likewise, Obama originally graduated from Columbia University, and "only" attended law school at Harvard.
My point is that I don't necessarily consider one's school to be sufficient criteria for being hailed as an intellectual heavyweight. When I hear that term with regard to politics, I think of William F. Buckley Jr. and Cornel West, not Obama and Bush. While I applaud both of them for obtaining degrees from those prestigious institutions, I'm hardly in awe of either's intellectual prowess. They're both sharp politicians in their own ways, but I wouldn't vote for either of them.
But, we're getting a bit off topic.
