    That's pretty high. Even Feynman only had 120 IQ.

    Based on her past (7 colleges, 2.2 high school GPA) and her kids (eldest dropped out of high school for starters) there's not much that points to "intellectual".

    Of course, we could just copy-and-paste the same vague remark about all three of the other main-party candidates as well.
    Of course, but you don't read too many snide remarks about McCain, Obama, or Biden being stupid or hickish, do you? Also, intelligence is not the only important asset to have as a leader. Look at some of our most brainiac presidents: Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton. Wide range of beliefs and "success" at the highest level.

    Fortunately for her, "intellectual" and "intelligent" are not the same things.

    Yeah, the former is something worthy of respect. The other is just an inherent quality. Like being pretty.

    I don't think she's smart, nor do I think she's dumb. I'll leave her at average until further evidence comes in.

    Being an intellectual is not necessarily something worthy of respect. Some intellectuals are amongst the worst people in the world.

    IMO, the most important thing is being smart enough to surround herself with intelligent people. Although, she may not have this either. Time will tell.

    There are always exceptions. I'll take an intellectual over an idiot 99% of the time.

    Yeah, but that was what people were saying about Dubya back in 2000. I think those "intellectuals" are what pure_mercury is talking about.

    Her IQ is MOST DEFINITELY NOT in the 120-130 range, HELL NO!!!



    She is terrifyingly STEWPID.

    Her IQ range: 95-105, and that very well may be an overestimation.

    I'm sure she thinks she can win over the world with a well placed wink.
