Now that Tony Snow has taken White House job, let us look at other Davidsonians in the White House:

Woodrow Wilson started at Davidson but couldn't handle the pressure and transferred to Princeton.

Dean Rusk almost started World War III during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Vince Foster was driven to shoot himself because of the Wall Street Journal's editorial page's willingness to tarnish him without any evidence whatsoever.

Caroline Hubbell, while at Davidson, allegedly had her academic records subpoenaed because of the investigation and subsequent indictment of her father, Webb Hubbell.

Will Tony Snow continue the tradition? Stay tuned.

Note to Critics: I'm not implying that all Davidson grads involved in the federal government have had issues. Take Dr. Wayne B. Jonas or William R. Ferris for example. It's just the ones in the executive branch that seem jinxed.

Postscript: Sarah North, daughter of Oliver North, transferred to Davidson in 1996 and probably transferred some time thereafter. Uneventful but there it is for the record.

Hilarious. I especially liked the Wilson jab.

Please don't forget Larry McDonald, President of the John Birch Society, Wingnut Congressman, and the "first victim of WWIII."
