Letter: In memory of other Americans at Oxford

Click to follow
Sir: Surely the intellectual capacity of President Clinton cannot be judged by the books that he borrowed while in Oxford. I am completing my first year of PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics - his subject) and, like him, have ventured to take out texts by Galbraith, Locke, Hobbes and Mill. Unfortunately, the fact that these tomes have graced my shelves does not necessarily mean that I have understood, read or even opened them.

Yours faithfully,
