GW Bush and John McCain come from extermely similar backgrounds. Both got into and through ELITE universities as legacies because they both had extremely successful fathers and grandfathers.
Both became undisciplined anti-intellectuals. Both were screw ups. McCain wants to continue the same economic and Iraq policies that GW Bush started.
Obama got into and through (brilliantly) elite universities on his own.
