Bwog White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie’s Political Weekly returns for a special end-of-times/beginning-of-times look at the Democratic nomination and a wrap-up of last month’s campaign trail happenings. And then there were two. One year, three months and twenty-four days after declaring his campaign for the Democratic nomination, Senator Barack Obama finally crossed the elusive […]
Bwog’s coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign continues with Jim Downie’s Political Weekly, now back to its regularly scheduled Monday broadcast. This week in politics is like the eye of a hurricane (or at least a tropical depression): stuck in between two supposedly significant weeks. Life on the campaign trail continues incessantly: campaign strategists will […]

Bwog spent the first hour of George Krebs’ presidency with the man of the hour and the rest of his camp in Krebs’ Watt Studio. Krebs bounded down the Watt stairs and greeted us. “Thank you!” he yelled. He ran back up the stairs and slammed the door to his studio open. “WOOOOO!” he yelled. […]
Screw CCSC elections. Last night, the real election everyone on campus was talking about went down: the election for Director of Technology of ESC! But apparently, not everyone was as excited as me. About ten people on the council were missingï¿½enjoying SEAS NY trips, returning Homeward Bound at Kim’s, etc. I snuck listens to the various coercing cell […]

Well dressed and well rehearsed, CCSC E-board candidates strut their stuff for the final time this evening in Wien Lounge, as they debated for the second time, trying to wrangle every last vote before the moratorium on campaigning Tuesday morning. Alidad and George, both looking dapper with slightly loosened ties, recited their stumps as a […]
With only a week more of campaigning left, both CCSC E-Board candidates are starting to gather up endorsements.

Satow Room Bureau Chief Martha Turewicz reports back from last night’s CCSC meetings.

This just in: Colin Drummond’s CC ’09 Campaign will use 10% fewer posters after promising a poster-less campaign. This is coming after Mark Johnson, current CC ’09 Vice President, submitted a rules violation due to early publication of this website. The Elections Board felt that the violation was “not malicious, intentional, or fundamentally unfair,” so […]
Today we saw our share of CCSC election controversy, but the E-board race has not been stirred too much. Now that policy can be discussed, however, more substance has emerged from the Krebs and Damooei camps. Damooei seems to have taken the lead in the multimedia department, already having released five videos on Youtube. Expect […]
Fu Foundation Bureau Chief Tony Gong stayed up all hours to report on the biggest night of the ESC calendar year, with the possible exception of Mole Day.
