Educational Backgrounds of the Candidates....Which Team Would You Hire?

Educational Backgrounds of the Candidates....Which Team Would You Hire?

(this blog appeared originally on 09/16/08on VoteMeCool - click the title to visit them, it's well worth it, believe me) 

I found this extremely useful info. while visiting the Electronic Village Blog.
(Its a totally Friendly, Unbiased site where anyone is welcome.)

Since ALL four (including Palin) candidates are asking us to hire them for Executive positions, shouldn't we THOROUGHLY examine their resumes?

Yes I realize that REAL EXPERIENCE (not Fraudulent Experience) counts as well, however shouldn't a good Education lay the foundation?

NOT trying to play the "Race Card" or make excuses but could someone please tell me how is it that whenever Minorities (especially African-Americans) are vying for Leadership roles their backgrounds are evaluated with a fine-tooth comb, but when the candidate is Caucasian it appears as if their faults or lack of necessary skills are often overlooked?

I'm just asking because inquiring minds want to know.

Here's some Food for Thought:

More Education doesn't mean your an ELITIST, just as less Education doesn't indicate you actually identify with Grassroots, WORKING CLASS type of people.

The double standard in American politics is pointed out in this educational resume comparison as well as other comparisons between Obama-Biden and McCain-Palin.
