pregame analysis for the debate

Mr. Schmidt over at Team Zebra has a great summary of things to look for at tonight's debate:
1. How will the Haddock/Riley and Voith/Gadgil outline and defend their positions on the UC's approach to social programming?
2. Will Grimeland/Hadfield clear the "credibility threshold," and make clear that they know their stuff and have a clear plan and motivation for leading the UC?
3. Which ticket will best demonstrate not only a grasp of the issues and the capacity to deliver on their promises (not to say these aren't important), but also a clear explanation of why, specifically, they want the jobs of UC President and Vice-President?
4. Which ticket will demonstrate an ability to talk about the UC in a way that makes the campus care about it?
5. Who comes across as a convincing leader?
Check out his full explanations for these five things, and check out the debate tonight at 8 pm at Science Center D.

6. Will anyone but hardcore supporters even show up, given the poor publicity effort by the Election Commission? Will the general student body have to only get hear about the debate through the filter of the Crimson?

No.

Yes.

Obviously.
