Right. At a time when many universities would rather throw shoes at W, SMU is definitely reciprocating for the Presidential Library choice.
The North Dallas suburb into which I'm moving the family is 85% Republican (according to census data). From the perspective of crass political opportunism, being affiliated with the school that's closely affiliated with Bush 43 (it's Laura's alma mater, by the way) doesn't hurt if you're trying to work in the metroplex or Texas in general.
