Not sure if this has been said yet, but...
Jim Cramer (yes, the crazy Mad Money guy), Harvard Law.

If I recall correctly Chief Justice John Roberts at one point called Cramer the smartest person he's ever met.

interesting wikipedia article on him, if anyone actually still thinks he's just some TV idiot douche: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Cramer
