I came to the US as an immigrant with something like $100 to my name.

I get her problems, I just don't get how she casually blew them off and ran for the highest office in the state.

BTW, thanks for the clarification of the HOPE scholarship timing. I wasn't aware of how new it was. You're right of course that it would have had zero impact on her education.
You do? You think that if she had made a big deal out of her debt, she would have gotten any more votes?

She went to Spellman college in Atlanta for undergrad & Yale for law school, which is the #1 law school in the country. Taking out loans to go to Yale is a no brainer, you are set for life with a law degree from Yale.
