Update Comments I forgot to add to first post of above link:

There was a presentation on tv about the S&B quite some time ago stating that there are two ways to get into the S&B: 1) Family Money & Clout (which they said was Bush's entrance); or 2) Highest ranking in intelligence (which they said was Kerry's entrance). It is intended (according to the progarm I watched) the heritage elite or the overwhelming intelligent. Kerry they said was asked into this group due to his scholastic honors and high intelligence. Bush was apparently just an automatic to invite in due to his family's long time history and membership.

The S&B has changed composite over the years, but still only takes in up to 15 members per year (so,reportedly 800 living at any time).

I found the reference to the program I saw on tv on this subject. This article give more insight to the current S&B. It is similar, but different than a fraternity, and is an integral part of Yale and many leaders in our country. In prior history (earlier years of S&B) even Adolph Hitler was a S&B.
