Obama says, under his administration, our schools kids will graduate and will all get high paying jobs. Keillor said, in his book, Pontoon: a Lake Wobegon Novel, we have become a country of all chiefs and no Indians.

Sure Barack kids may even be inspired to have a will. Sorry, but having a "will" doesn't mean one who has the "will" will have the capability or DESIRE to become a chief with a high paying job.
I lunched at a local restaurant yesterday. All the staff was black. None of those I watched working are capable of being chiefs with a high paid job, Obama's new education or not.
Obama said he is going to create 2 and one half new million jobs. I hope he can find "workers" to fill these jobs. I hope they learn some skills along with computer skills, IPOD's., UPOD's or even MEPOD's. Like physically working with their hands along with their thinking minds and their will to better themselves. Or, I guess we will eventually have to do like Sweden does. Just open the borders for anyone who wants to work. We already have 3/4 of the illegal people in the U.S. working pretty hard right now.
What I heard from Obama's new education chief is the same rhetoric I've heard for the past 15 years. I am glad Arne Duncan played basketball, he should know how to compete.
Good luck, Arne.
