NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama’s Love of Elites: The president struck a populist note in his speech, but it’s hard to tell he believes it when you look at his administration. “A National Journal survey last year of 250 decision-makers in the Obama administration found that no fewer than 40 percent of them held Ivy League degrees. Moreover, just one-quarter of those officials held graduate degrees from a public university. In fact, more Obama administration officials secured advanced degrees from Oxford—you know, in England—than from any American public school. And more than 60 either attended Harvard as an undergrad or a grad student. . . . You’re more likely to find someone who grew up overseas working in the top ranks in the administration than someone who grew up in Texas.”

So much for “a cabinet that looks like America.”
