It keeps getting worse for Broadwell. Two anonymous Harvard professors trash her

snip

From the Boston Globe:

One of Broadwell's former professors at Harvard described her as a self-promoter who would routinely show up at office hours.

"It was very much, 'I'm here and you're going to know I'm here,' " said the professor, who did not want to be identified because of the sensitivity of ongoing investigations. "She was not someone you would think of as a critical thinker. I don't remember anything about her as a student. I remember her as a personality."

The professor said when Petraeus chose Broadwell to write his biography, there was shock among the national security faculty at Harvard because "she just didn't have the background the academic background, the national security background, or the writing background."

A second Harvard faculty member who knows Broadwell and Petraeus had similar misgivings.
