Who's More Elitist?

Today's Lesson: Between the Columbia U. grad with a Harvard law degree, and the Wellesley grad with a law degree from Yale, who is more elitist?

The one that's worth 110 times what the other is worth. Or perhaps the one who started out as a Young Republican. It might be the one who has dropped the Southern accent except when speechifying. Perhaps the one whose father ran a successful textile business, and was raised in the lap of suburban luxury.

On the other hand, it might be the one raised by a single mom and her parents. Or the one whose grandad was in the Army and then became a salesman. The one who's father studied on a university scholarship? The one who is one generation removed from immigrant, rather than two?
