Two terms Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker may be an Eagle Scout, but he’s not a college graduate. Currently a strong contender for the Republican candidate in the 2016 Presidential Election, Governor Walker has made it clear that he would only seek a college degree for the sake of Education, not for political gains.
Walker wouldn’t be the first President to hold office without a college degree; actually, he would be the tenth after George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland, and Harry Truman. Of course, those were other times.
In today’s “College Saturated” society, one can’t help but wonder how well he would fair in the election. Based on his political career so far, voters in Wisconsin seem to believe he’s up to task. If they didn’t, he wouldn’t have been reelected Governor of Wisconsin. But, how would he fair in a National Election?
Would you consider voting a non-college graduate into the White House?
