Among the past residents of the White House:

Harvard can lay claim to John F. Kennedy; Princeton can boast Woodrow Wilson; Columbia can field Franklin D. Roosevelt and now Barack Obama; while poor Yale’s standard must be borne by George W. Bush ’68.

I don’t know about you, but if I were a Yale alumnus I would find this state of things deeply humiliating. The only remedy I can see is to put more money in your football program.
