An Open Letter


Does this open letter to the American people by just about a gazillion nobel laureates endorsing Obama help or hurt him? All 2008 US Nobel Laureates in Science Endorse Obama! - Scientists & Engineers for America Action Fund. I think one of Obama's advantages is that everyone knows he's smart. Any idiot can get into Harvard, but Editor of the Harvard Law Review is a harder job to get than POTUS. But with certain segments that he is trying to win over; especially the white working class, see those Ivy League educated elites, which are presumed to be weak socialists or extreme liberals, as a negative.
Despite the fact that these are all Americans, can't you just see Sarah Palin looking at the names and mentioning that there are a lot of foreigners? I appreciate intellect and logic, but personally, I wasn't impressed with this. That was until I read the letter. I thought it was kind of thoughtful and found their excitement around a president who appreciates science and technology hilarious. Was Bush really that bad?
