I'm not fond of Hillary Clinton's politics -- her recent cry for a "we're all in it together" society is pure socialism -- but I think she's right on the nose when she points out that too many Americans are going to college.

Clinton spoke at the Manchester School of Technology, which trains high school students for careers in the construction, automotive, graphic arts and other industries. The school highlighted one of the nine goals she outlined: increasing support for alternative schools and community colleges.

"We have sent a message to our young people that if you don't go to college ... that you're thought less of in America. We have to stop this," she said. "Our country cannot run without the people who have the skills that are taught in this school."

Of course government policies are part of the reason that so many adults are over-educated for their jobs (but under-trained).
