    Number three is fascinating. There are so many doctoral holders in elected government. It's remarkable!

    They're including law degrees.

    I think "running for public office" is in the ABA core curriculum of law schools these days.

    Indeed. And I wonder how many on the "Bachelor's only" list are older folks who hold LLB degrees.

    Are there still any old LLBs still around?

    They'd be pretty old by now, but Congress is skewed older, so maybe.

    This has meaning if you accept that being highly schooled is being highly educated.

    Proposing legislation makes you an effective legislator? Why is this assumed?

    For that matter, you'd have to accept that being highly educated is being highly intelligent.

    And for that we'd have to know what is intelligence. I doubt that we begin to know.

    As I've said before, some guys I worked with never graduated high school, and they were among the best cops I ever met. Conversely, I've had a Harvard Ph.D. professor who I wouldn't trust with sharp scissors.

    Wikipedia thinks that current Supreme Court Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Steven Breyer earned LLBs.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor_of_Laws

    When American law schools phased out the LLB, many of them gave their alumni the opportunity to trade in their LLB diplomas in exchange for JD diplomas. I don't know if any of these three Supreme Court justices took advantage of that. (I believe that some of the crustier legal old-timers of the time proudly and pointedly kept their LLBs.)

    Hmmm...maybe the next wave of populism will result in a reversal on the emphasis on degrees for elected officials. It would be interesting to see what would happen with some high school and tech school grads in congress.
