Interesting McCain and Obama factoids

McCain graduated 894th out of 899 in his naval academy class. Nice.

I wonder if he'll name 895 to 899 as potential cabinet positions?

Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School and was elected President of the prestigious Harvard Law Review over 18 other candidates.

The good news in all this is that there is no question Obama is incredibly intelligent - the bad news is that the LAST thing we need in Washington is another freakin' lawyer.

Shakespeare's Henry the VI had it right.

Re: Interesting McCain and Obama factoids

One more interesting fact about McCain.

While a prisoner of the North Vietnamese, his captors found out that his father was an Admiral. They offered to turn McCain loose if he would denounce the war and America. McCain turned down any special treatment because of who his father was, this resulted in some beatings and a few more years of imprisonment.

Says something about his character, if nothing else. Guess he must have learned a couple of things in the Naval Academy concerning Honor, Duty and probably a couple more, no matter his class standing.
