genaro, I didn't know Obama was a Harvard grad. Impressiv list. Here's ours:
Neil Armstrong (astronaut)
Wally Schirra (astronaut)
Tex Winter (Hall of fame inductee, developed Triangle offense)
Dr. Jerry Buss (owner of the Lakers)
Barron Hilton (chairman of Hilton Hotel chain)
John Carpenter (movie director)
Ron Howard (Opie, and Oscar winning Director)
Herb Alpert (musician, co-founder of A&M Records)
Lionel Hampton (world renowned jazz musician)
John Wayne (Oscar winning actor)
Warren Christopher (U.S. Secretary of State)
General Norman Schwarzkopf (4 star general)
This is just a SMALL list. I didn't list the many athlete's and gold medal winning Olympian's, but you'd know most of the names.
Anyway, while we don't have any President's, USC's alumni are well known throughout the world of sports, entertainment, business, politics, academia and the military.
We could debate this all day, but I think I've made my point. USC is able to combine superior academics with excellence in sports. That's why we take great pride in their accomplishments along with the professional sporting teams.
