Gore, Kerry were C students, too

TOM RUBENOFF says we should spend less time vilifying Bush and more trying to figure out why Americans put ''this C student" into office in the first place (letter, Oct. 11). Rubenoff should be reminded that both Democratic presidential candidates Bush ran against were C students as well. Vice President Gore had a particularly substandard postgraduate record, failing both the divinity and law schools at Vanderbilt, while Bush earned an MBA from Harvard. Bush's detractors should find a more distinctive epithet.
