Perdue's campus tour to continue at Duke

Posted February 8, 2013

— After spending this spring at Harvard University, former Gov. Beverly Perdue will spend next fall at Duke University, school officials said Friday.

Perdue will serve as a distinguished visiting fellow at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, where she will participate in the intellectual life of the school, engage with Duke faculty and share insights from her life in politics with students and faculty. She also will serve as an adviser to the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy.

“Her extensive experience in state politics is invaluable," Bruce Kuniholm, dean of the Sanford School, said in a statement. "We envision her speaking with classes, interacting one-on-one with students and helping our professors better understand how their public policy research can influence policy-making. At the same time, she will be able to explore her passions for education and technology with some of the nation’s best scholars on these subjects.”

Perdue is serving as a resident fellow in the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University during the spring semester.

    "Liberalism is what keeps us human. Without its governing hand on the fat cat conservatives, we would become a nation of slaves/pawns of the rich. Already, we have a small group of super wealthy who are hoarding everything for themselves while watching the common man suffer. Current technology would allow us to feed the world 4 times over, but the rich are too worried about making the billionaire list. Lean some humility, and humanity. Praise to the former governor. She cares!" walences

    Even if a small part of this were true, it still doesn't apply to Bev Perdue. Far from liberal, she was the last in a long line of good ole boy machine politicians to be Governor of NC. The only thing to set her apart from Hunt, Easley, Black, Basnight, et al was her astonishing incompetence.

    She will be applying for a job everywhere so she can feel important again. Maybe BHO can use her somewhere. They are so much alike!
