Hank Brown for President?

The Wall Street Journal gave Hank Brown a heckuva going-away present when the former Colorado senator left his job as president of University of Colorado earlier this month.

In a March 22 editorial, the paper called Brown "the best college president you've never heard of," praising his common-sense handling of both the Ward Churchill scandal and the CU athletic department mess he inherited when he took over from Betsy Hoffman in 2005 -- both controversies that got plenty of national coverage, even if they didn't make Brown a household name.

And the editorial proceeded to suggest Brown for president -- no, not of the United States. That's too easy. Why not let him take on academia's most embattled institution? "Send that man to Harvard," the editorial ended. -- Patricia Calhoun
