Who knew? They really do rule.

President Obama is the smart academic, just as are those who love him most. Look at David Paul Kuhn’s summary of where Obama’s money comes from:
Obama's campaign raised a record $745 million. . . about a quarter of Obama's fundraising came from people who contributed less than $200, the same share as George W. Bush four years earlier, according to the nonpartisan Campaign Finance Institute. Donors who contributed at least $1,000 filled nearly half of Obama's coffer. And the five companies whose employees donated the most to Obama were respectively: University of California, Goldman Sachs, Harvard University, Microsoft Corp and Google Inc. [emphasis added]

Such a tight, tiny, high-powered circle: University of California; Harvard; Barack Obama, J.D., Harvard Law (1991); Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfin, Harvard (1975), J.D., Harvard Law (1978); Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Harvard (x1977); Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Ph.D., University of California (1982).

Recall it, the excitement! A philosopher-king, one of their own, ruling the world’s most powerful nation. The dream did come true in 2008.

It's true, I'll take the philosopher king over the Mr. Rule-from-the-Gut any day...
