29. What's so bad about being smart?
Shouldn't you want to be smart and educated and learn something new every day? I want the president of my country to be way smarter then me. That's why I love Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Edwards, Dean, Kucinich. All of our democratic people (for the most part) are very smart and encourage that. What's so bad? :shrug:
