Test?  The big question may very well be, “How smart is smart enough to run our great nation?”.

George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, received a reputation by some for being a somewhat unwise individual. Some felt he did not live up to his 138.5 I.Q.

Like many of us, he may not have had outstanding grades during high school, but he did do an amazing job of engaging with peers!
