There aren’t too many of them that will walk in to college and make a 3.5 or a 4.0 in college
The context was talk radio host Steve Gill's question about whether Hope Scholarships ought to go to some nontraditional students. I can't believe that Phil Bredesen is often mentioned as possible Vice President material. His shoot-from-the-hip style often leads to foot-in-mouth consequences.
