Today's Hot Nerd: Hillary
Only one name needed, thank you very much. While she is undoubtedly one of the most polarizing figures of American politics over the past quarter-century, her nerdentials are impeccable: Wellesley College followed by Yale Law School and law review; counsel for WalMart, law professor at the Univ. of Arkansas (IP), child advocate, then first lady of Arkansas and First Lady of the United States (first woman in that role with a post-baccalaureate degree), ambitious advocate for health care reform, Junior Senator (D-NY), almost-First Woman President, now Secretary of State under Obama's philosophy of keep thy enemies nearer. While she's not for everyone, you still have to give her props.
