McCain Graduated Fifth from Last in His US Naval Academy Class

According to Newsweek, John Sydney McCain, III graduated fifth from last in his class at the US Naval Academy. So, this November may present a choice between one candidate who was editor of the Harvard Law Review and barely graduated from college at all. This will be the year in which Republicans argue that educational attainments don't matter, that meritocracy doesn't extent to electing presidents based on their academic ability, effort or attainment, but instead on two other qualities that are easier for Americans to see: being white and being a man.
