Eastwood says he doesn't support lawyers running for president
What he said:
See, I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to the president, anyway. I think attorneys are so busy -- you know, they're always taught to argue everything, and always weigh everything -- weigh both sides. They are always devil's advocating this and bifurcating this and bifurcating that. You know all that stuff. But, I think it is maybe time -- what do you think -- for maybe a businessman. How about that?
It's true that Mitt Romney is a businessman -- he founded the private equity firm Bain Capital.
It's also true that President Obama is a Harvard-trained lawyer -- he graduated magna cum laude in 1991. But Mitt Romney is also a Harvard-trained lawyer -- he attended both the law school and the business school from 1971 to 1975 and graduated from both with honors.
