I don't know his rank in his graduating class, and usually in law schools and med schools, there are so many exceptional students that do amazingly well that they don't publicly announce rank. This is especially true in the top tier schools, such as Harvard, where if you rank the best and the bright…est, you're splitting hairs, cause almost everyone is very talented and smart and all around over-achievers. From my experience in med school, ranks are withheld, usually to foster a more friendly environment, but I do know this much:\nBarack Obama graudated magna cum laude from Harvard Law, which means that his GPA was between 3.7-3.899.

As of mid September 2012: According to trading at Intrade (a world-wide prediction market), President Obama has a very good chance. As of mid September 2012, President Obama is listed with a 66.3% likelihood to win the 2012 election and that trend is going up daily. They have his opponent, Gover…nor Romney, at 33.2% likelihood with a continuing down trend. Note: The Intrade site (link is in related links section below) is the world's leading stock-trading-style market (called a "decision market" or "prediction market") which attempts to "trade" the likelihood of various people being the next president, in the same way people trade stocks. While certainly not a guarantee, it's a good way to see how people who actually bet money on an outcome (instead of just answering a random poll) predict who the next President will be. With Intrade, these numbers don't necessarily have to add up to 100%, the numbers are based upon active "betting" with investment on one or the other to win the election. Many believe this is a better and more accurate way to determine what people are willing to put their money down for, as opposed to getting the numbers from polling opinions. Yes he is going to win.
