Average students; world leaders

President Bush and Senator Kerry were both C-students in college, and contrary to popular perception, Pres. Bush actually had a slightly better GPA (77 to 76). If C-students from Yale become President and runner-up of the most powerful nation in the world, what do A-students accomplish? Or do GPAs not really matter as much as we're led to believe?

I think it's illustrating how much "social" capital matters in the world. As much as we like to espouse the u.s. as achievement oriented, we still operate very much in a status way.
