Is Obama’s IQ lower than the minimum needed for graduate work?

In our discussion about whether Barack Obama is an “affirmative action president,” a reader said yesterday that he doubts “that Obama’s IQ is higher than 105.” I replied that the remark was so obviously incorrect that it showed that the reader was speaking out of sheer dislike of Obama. Today, seeking to buttress his position, the reader quotes a long letter written in 1980 by the 29 year old Obama as president of the Harvard Law Review in which he explained the Review’s selection process for editors. Picking the letter apart, the reader says it provides “incontrovertible evidence” that Obama’s IQ is less than 110. I reply.
