POLITICS: War of the Rhodes

Now, I've known only two Rhodes Scholars in my time (at least that I can think of offhand), and neither particularly well, but doesn't Andrew Sullivan appear to be overgeneralizing a wee bit, in his haste to attack Wesley Clark, when he says that "[a]lmost to a man and woman, they [Rhodes Scholars] are mega-losers, curriculum-vitae fetishists, with huge ambition and no concept of what to do with it."

The new rabbinic intern in our synagogue is a Rhodes Scholar.
The best quote I ever heard about Rhodes alumni was that they took their scholarship as license to predicate every sentence on it - e.g. "As a Rhodes Scholar, I think it will rain today."
