Commence liberalism 

Our articles on commencement speaker bias (like here and here) are just the tip of the iceberg, says the Young America's Foundation.
Commenting on the annual study, Young America�s Foundation President Ron Robinson explained, �For eleven years, we�ve shown that college administrators are using commencement ceremonies to send their students off with one more predictable leftist lecture. This year, the most prestigious schools exclude scholars like Milton Friedman, Thomas Sowell, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas for the likes of Kofi Annan, Madeleine Albright, Gloria Steinem, and Ralph Nader.�
Their page contains a list of the 100 top universities and 100 top colleges in U.S. News and World Report, with the name of their commencement speaker.

The one exception was, as it was last year, Hillsdale College.(Hat tip: Art Carden.)
