General Off-Topic Board / Re: Just curioous... Republican or Democrat

I am not making a value judgment on that statement, just pointing out the fact that history will judge the ultimate success of the venture.  If it is successful, the details will be largely forgotten.

For example, compare how history views the beginnings of WWII with the beginnings of the Vietnam War.

That is definitely true: if the Prez's goals are reached - democracy spreads throughout the Middle East - history will not remember the cost (in $$s or lives), or how it was sold to the American people.

I beg to differ.  Bush, et al, willfully spun the intelligence to meet their goals.  It's the same as willfully lying.

Is Milwaukee inside or outside Portland?

Touche!  But you can drive from Milwaukee to the Columbia in 20 mins...

Lewis & Clark is south of Portland, & the Columbia is north of it, no?

Yes, if all other schools have been properly credited for their location, & L&C has not, then certainly, L&C is underrated b/c of their location.  I find it difficult to believe, however, that L&C's location is not adequately factored into its ranking as compared to other schools and their locations.

I lived and owned a car in Portland for five years.  You certainly can drive across town - say from Lewis & Clark to the Columbia River - in 20 minutes.

In terms of the definition of metropolis, I'll concede it.  However, in terms of whether proximity to the 'metropolis' of Portland should boost L&C's ranking, you'd first have to give greater creedence to every school in every city larger than Portland, which, I think, would negate any positive associated with such a reconsideration.

Portland is NOT a major metropolis. Small to midsized city, at most. You can drive clear across town in 20 minutes.
