If you base intelligence on the single criteria of sounding good, you’d say that many MIT students are idiots. If you based it on the 2 criterias of sounding good and looking good as the indicators of intelligence, Bill Gates would flunk both of those standards. On and on.

That’s why there are such things as degrees, IQ scores, experience and proven a record of success. Even with a degree, you’ve still gotten to prove experience – which I say is the single best indicator.[/quote]
I fell for fancy rhetoric and a polished image another time, in the 1984 Presidential race!

No matter how much people try to spin it, there’s nothing they can do to change the numbers. GPA’s can’t be change. Kerry had the lower GPA, yet claims to be the smartasst guy on the planet that the people are very luck to have as Senator.
