The parade of leftist commencement speakers continues unimpeded, reports Jason Mattera of the Young America's Foundation:

Sadly, if you've attended a graduation ceremony in the last 15 years, chances are you heard from a Democratic Party official, liberal activist, or someone within the mainstream media. Young America's Foundation has kept a record. . . . Our analysis shows that the overwhelming majority of those who can be classified on an ideological spectrum are left of center. . . . By our count, there were only six recognizable conservatives this year - less than one-fifth the number of liberal speakers.
YAF has the full list of this year's commencement speakers at the U.S. News Top 100 colleges and universities.
