It depends what the meaning of the word "nuanced" is:

Sen. John F. Kerry's grade average at Yale University was virtually identical to President Bush's record there, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as the more intellectual candidate during the 2004 presidential campaign.

Kerry had a cumulative average of 76 and got four Ds his freshman year -- in geology, two history courses and political science, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

When they write about my grades during my Presidential bid, the worst they will be able to say is that I got a C in Syntax and Semantics and a B- in Lesbian Whining Gender Studies.

I guess I don't understand why the Boston Globe seems to think there's a connection between college grades and being intellectual (or, as this quote seems to imply, being as smart as or smarter than someone else).

Surely that should be based on interests and pursuits through life as a whole?

I think it's painfully obvious to anyone who cares to look that a 4.0 GPA is not indicative of brainpower.
Well, the point of this article was that during the election there was a big deal made about Bush's 'bad' grades, and now it's come out that Kerry's were basically the same. So - surprise surprise - it was just political rhetoric. Imagine that ;)
