President Bush's approval rating is way, way down - at least among the Stuyvesant High School Class of '04.

Class leaders have panned the idea of asking the leader of the free world to speak at their commencement ceremony next June. Although former President Bill Clinton addressed the 2002 graduating class, many students at Stuyvesant said the current President is all wrong for the storied school's centennial graduation.

"He's not an eloquent speaker. Students want an inspirational speaker," said Sophia Mokotoff, 17, vice president of the senior class for 2004. "Students feel he wouldn't provide the inspiration."
