Professionalism and Politics

The current credit crunch and bailout bungle reminds me once again of the need for our country to be guided by educated people.

I've suggested previously that higher education ought to be required for political candidates.

Wouldn't it be refreshing to have some economists in Congress about now?

When the Constitution was written, over two hundred years ago, graduate degrees were uncommon. But now they are so common that many of the people working in restaurants in college towns either have a graduate degree or are working on one.

The system wouldn't be foolproof, (Dubya allegedly has an MBA, but is a total dumbass) but I think it would be a step in the right direction.
