Students and experts discuss presidential politics

first_imgNo matter who wins next November, we’re not going to elect the first African-American president. Given the depth of our current recession, the election is going to be important for a very different reason. There hasn’t been a president since [Franklin Delano] Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan who’s faced such immense economic challenges. Whoever wins the election will have to lead the [United States] and the world as we shift from a mostly industrial to a technological society. The last time the U.S. economy underwent such a dramatic transition is when we went from an agriculturally-based economy to an industrial one.– Dan Schnur, Director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of PoliticsI’m trying to pay really close attention so I can be well-informed next November. I feel like at the moment it’s too early to take any of the candidates seriously … within the next few months the serious candidates will come out of the woodwork, I think we’ll get to hear from [Mitt] Romney who I think is Obama’s only serious competition, but it should be an interesting scenario.– Miguel Contreras, senior majoring in civil engineeringObama is still well liked but the Republicans have a good shot because of this economy. They just have to get the right candidate to run against him.– Jack Ostler, senior majoring in geology and economicsI’d like to see more of a commitment to educational support, whether it’s Pell grants or libraries. Some of the top schools, like Princeton, have enacted a no-loans policy … I’d like to see more policies that enforce that. If they’re going to do some trading of favors, I’d like to see it go toward education rather than some of the other things they spend taxpayer money on.– Adam Sexton, Library manager at Doheny Memorial LibraryI don’t feel very good about the elections. The only person I’ve actually heard a bit about is Cain, and between the ridiculous ‘blame yourself’ quotes and sexual harassment allegations, he doesn’t seem very appealing. I guess it’s going to be four more years for Obama, and I’m alright with that.– Aruna Uppal, graduate student studying educationWhat Obama is trying to do is put out a house fire with a squirt gun. Give the man some resources.– Spencer Di Dio, senior majoring in economicsThe biggest problem I see is the lack of bipartisan cooperation … within the Republican primary it’s going to be Romney in the front row; everyone else seems to be self-destructive. … It depends what happens in the Congressional and Senate elections. Obama has begun to alienate some of his core supporters by moving toward the center. Clinton was able to do that, Obama not so much.– Stanley Rosen, professor of political scienceI’d like to see a reform on border policy — that’s been delegated a lot at the state level but it’s a national threat. I’ve lost my faith in Obama at the beginning of his term, but at certain points there were events which have regained my faith in him.  … I think he’s the best qualified candidate we have right now.– Mayir Adato, senior majoring in business administrationI just don’t think any of [the candidates] is strong enough. Even Obama is not strong enough, but neither is the alternative. Obama has a stronger financial base. Right now Republican nominees appear to me very weak … but, you know, Obama is really unpopular now. His approval rating is about as low as any president’s has ever been.– Victoria Xie, senior majoring in history and economicslast_img read more

Three-game win streak not in cards for Trojans

first_imgWith the score tied 12-12 in the first set, reigning Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week Joshua Walker went to his knees in search of a missing contact.Racking them up · Sophomore outside hitter Tony Ciarelli recorded a team-high 21 kills, six digs and two assists in a losing effort Tuesday. – Gage Allard | Daily Trojan Three minutes later, as Hawai’i’s opposite hitter finally arose to Johnny Nash’s 1972 hit “I Can See Clearly Now” blaring on the arena sound system, the No. 7 USC men’s volleyball team and the Galen Center crowd erupted in a throng of laughter. Unfortunately, for the Trojan faithful it would be Walker and his No. 5 Hawai’i Warriors’ team that would get the last laugh Tuesday night.In a match that saw constant bantering from both sides, two injury timeouts and action more befitting of a NCAA tournament environment, the Warriors (12-7, 8-6) defeated USC (10-7, 8-6) in four sets, much to the dismay of the 200 plus fans in attendance.Hawai’i regained its step after dropping Monday night’s match to the Trojans, in large part because of the 180-second hiatus caused by the missing lens. When play resumed, the Warriors, behind eight kills from Walker took the first set 32-30 and never looked back.“We are conscious of our failures in the first set, but maybe it is just too big of an elephant in the room right now,” USC coach Bill Ferguson said. “If we knew exactly what the problem was, trust me it would have been gone by now.”In the winning effort, Hawai’i was led by 6-foot-9 opposite hitter Jonas Umlauft’s impressive 25 kills and Walker, a notorious Trojan-killer, who chipped in with 22 kills.While the match marks the team’s second win in three showdowns with the Trojans this season, the victory was hanging in the balance after the Trojans rebounded to take the second set, 30-27, with eight kills by sophomore outside hitter Tony Ciarelli and a team set hitting percentage of .235.But in a night of few silver linings, the Warriors took advantage of every mistake made by USC. In the third set, Hawai’i quickly got out in front of the Trojans, 6-1, and capitalized on several service and attack errors down the stretch to take the set with relative ease.The fourth set looked promising for the Trojans, as a block and kill by junior middle blocker Austin Zahn gave the team an early 13-9 cushion. But in similar fashion to its play in the month of February, USC folded when the match got close.Using three straight errors and a block by Umlauft, the Warriors took a late 27-26 lead they wouldn’t relinquish en route to a 30-27 victory.“USC has been our new rival the past few years, and we know when we play them it’s going to be a battle,” Warriors’ outside hitter Joshua Walker said. “You know if you can beat a team like [USC], you have a very good team.”For the Trojans, their bid for a three-game win streak was denied, but in defeat, optimism and improvement were the main messages Ferguson took away from the night’s match.“The offense continues to improve and our attackers are getting better and better each match,” Ferguson said. “I like the new alignment we have in there with [freshman] Maddison McKibbin starting at opposite. Right now it’s all little things.”last_img read more
