A lesson from the Florida Bar Exam for the Presidential candidates I was sharing a few law school stories with a friend recently, and was reminded about something entertaining that happened when I took the Florida Bar Exam and yes, this really does relate to the presidential race.
The Florida Bar Exam at least when I took it spends an entire day on questions based on Florida law, a half day of multiple choice questions and a half day of essay questions.
Anyway, the day before the exam, I saw several of my fellow UF Law grads downstairs in the hotel lobby. One of my friends introduced to a guy I had never seen before.

Mathematically, getting almost all of the questions wrong on one section out of six meant that even if you wrote three perfect essays and got every single other multiple choice question correct an unlikely featyou still would not have enough points to get a passing grade on the Florida portion of the test.
I am seriously concerned that too many of our candidates are "failing a major section" of voter outreach. My worry centers on what I saw in John McCain won the primary by basically outlasting the other candidates and secured the nomination without having a majority of the Republican electorate behind him.
Now, this year, we have several of the frontrunners either ignoring or taking for granted major sections of Republican voters. Rick Perry is working hard to reach out to social conservative voters in Iowa, but some of his messaging risks alienating more moderate voters.It’s that time of year again.
