Also, no student should neglect to fill out their Bloom Idol ballot each Thursday night.
I agree that it feels like the integrity of my vote has degenerated. I wish I could be wildly excited about my choice for president, but the reality of world is that in a month, the next president of the United States will be chosen, and it will be McCain or Obama.
