7. Hmm...
I'm guessing you're attempting to claim that the more educated of posters either support, or don't support Obama. I'll give you the benefit of a doubt though.

I have a GED. That's my education level and I'm damn proud of it. I graduated from a Jobcorps program in a severely economically depressed area. I was proud to stand on a stage and be handed my diploma along with four amazing people. One was sixty years old, one was Pregnant and a former drug addict, one was a former gangster. Another was a man who had a choice of going to prison or going to Jobcorps. They were fantastic people, even though they lacked what most consider education. They were fantastic people who despite the odds against them, accomplished a great deal and passed a test that is quite a bit harder than most assume. I really hope you're not trying to imply anything based on our education level....

As for the President, I give him a 3.
