Preppy wars: It’s Andover Academy vs. St. Paul’s.
... Interesting article on Kerry’s background.
I’ve never totally bought into the Kerry-as-gold-digger image. There’s an element of that. Sure. But what struck me reading this article is how quasi-aristrocratic families stick amongst themselves, old money or no old money, and marrying within the club is expected and accepted. This is the world Kerry was born into, albeit at the bottom. Nothing wrong with that. Wish I was in the club. ... Will this hurt Kerry? Perhaps. But George can’t exactly say, ‘I’m less of an artistocrat than he is!’ I’m sure the counter-attack TV ads are in the can if the issue becomes an issue.
