You Can Always Tell A Harvard President
President Barack Obama and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney may not admit to sharing much with one another. One thing they do have in common is a Harvard Law School ("HLS") J.D.: Obama was graduated from HLS in 1991, and Romney in 1975. Despite surviving the same One L Paper Chase trauma, Obama gave Romney the third degree about his second degree from Harvard (MBA Harvard Business School 1975) at the White House Correspondents Dinner, on April 28, 2012, where Obama joked that "We both have degrees from Harvard. I have one, he has two. What a snob!" This dropping of the H-bomb notwithstanding, it is almost certain that January 20, 2013, will see Harvard President #8 inaugurated for his second term or Harvard President #9 for his first. "And when the [inauguration] ends, we'll sing again: Ten thousand men of Harvard gained vict'ry today!"
