How Jenna's boyfriend got into Harvard.

How does a college dropout get into Harvard Business School?

By carrying the president's Altoids:
A 26-year-old college dropout who carries President Bush’s breath mints and makes him peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches will follow in his boss’s footsteps this fall when he enrolls at Harvard Business School (HBS).

Though it is rare for HBS—or any other professional or graduate school—to admit a student who does not have an undergraduate degree, admissions officers made an exception for Blake Gottesman, who for four years has served as special assistant and personal aide to Bush...
Among the high points of Gottesman's CV are one year at Claremont-McKenna College, experience as an aide to Andy Card and personal assistant to Bush, and... having dated Jenna Bush ten years ago. His duties today range "from dog-sitting the president’s Scottish terriers, Barney and Miss Beazley, to carrying the president’s speeches and giving him the 'two-minute warning' before a speech begins."

and now if he can look a little more like Alfred E. Newman AND not show up for National Guard, he might have a future....
