If you have a site in a unique niche related to .gov for instance, you might have a better shot at it. For example, I have a personal website in the aviation industry and I have two .gov's and thre .edu backlinks. I acquired the links via traditional link exchange. The only reason I was able to get the links is because my site is a benefit to the sites that I obtained the links from.
Keep in mind that it won't work for all types of sites. If your site is selling gift baskets or another typical retail product that we see every day on the web, the chance of landing one of these links is remote. Your site has to naturally be related to an industry or market segment that naturally gets links from the top levels you seek.
