List of Famous Columbians – Obama’s Name Still Missing: Is There a List of Infamous Columbians Somewhere?

I posted on Wayne Allyn Root in November 2009 and his site led to a page of “Famous Columbians,” listing graduates of Columbia University who are famous. Root graduated Columbia in the same class as Barack Obama, 1983, political science and pre-law. He didn’t know Obama, and according to Root, none of his friends knew him. This list of famous Columbians has many familiar names on it, but the present President of the United States is not there, nor is the current President of the United States who is a Nobel Prize winner there. At the time I found the list, nine months after Obama’s inauguration, I thought perhaps the list had not yet been updated, but…today, he’s still not there. The page looks legitimate. How could Barack Hussein Obama be missing from this page?

The list begins with a section for Politicians. Former Governors Gray Davis and George Pataki made the list. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg made the list – the only notation being that she is the daughter of JFK.  But Obama is not there. Al Gore’s daughter is there, just because she is Al Gore’s daughter. The bar isn’t set very high. Obama tool George Stephanopolous is listed.

Obama is an “author,” so maybe we find his name there, along with Norman Podhoretz and Anna Quindlan? No.

How about under the Business Category? Yuck, yuck! Waren Buffet is there. Stephen Friedman is there. Obama is not there.

He isn’t on the list.

Do you think for a minute Obama’s handlers would let this slip by for three years after Wayne Allyn Root pointed it out to the world? Maybe there’s a list of “infamous Columbians? Anyone have any ideas? Background here. Wayne Allyn Root’s website here.

  • Could it be that Obana is an embarrassment to Colunbia?

    • Jim, I think it can be. Maybe his grades were terrible. Maybe he attended but didn’t graduate – but something is very very wrong with this.

      • Jim, the list is only for “famous” grads, not “notable” or “exceptional” grads – just “famous”

        • Ricci

          Then why is Friedman on it?

          • Ricci, “famous” was their word, not mine. Why was Al Gore’s daughter on it?

  • Loved the title

    Generally you’d think becoming President would be enough to qualify as Famous

    • Thanks Grumpy! Yes, wouldn’t ya think!

    I hate to burst the bubble around here, but the truth of the matter is that list is dated to early 2001, before Mr. Obama’s rise. Check dates, it’ll answer many questions.

    • M. Thompson, but there isn’t another list to be found, and why would he not be added? You can even email the webmaster for suggestions – surely someone would, but the other thing is, websites are updated all the time and little details like the date at the bottom are over-looked. Obama is the President of the United States. As I said, how and why would his handlers let this slip by?

        Looks like link rot. It’s the personal site of a former head of an organization that was being used by the organization, and he’s had other work.

        Still, rather embarrassing for the organization.
