My own bets on who'll win Executive seats.
President: Jesse Gabriel
But this one could be close as anything. Everything I've seen indicates that Kris is getting lots of votes, and he's sure to transfer well.
EVP: Han Hong
Academic: Tony Falcone
I'm going to bet I get 15-20% of votes cast for AAVP. That's a pretty good amount for someone who spent 0 dollars on his campaign. (Well, excluding filing charges.)
External: Jimmy Bryant
Ian compares this to the Michelle/Catherine matchup from last year, but I'm less sure. Michelle was a weak candidate, and I think Catherine was too busy with Cal-SERVE's campaign to really run her own. These two are exceptionally good candidates battling it out for every vote. And while Michelle/Catherine was about energizing their base, this one is about reaching beyond their (electorally small) base.
Student Action: Da Rest
And to be honest, I'm not too concerned about who wins this year. The ASUC is so badly organized that even the best and the brightest elected will be caught in the blinds. Since my own reform plan is mostly nonpartisan, it would have just as good a chance at succeeding under any party.
On a personal, grossly cynical level, I can get what I want from the ASUC just as well under either regime. I know enough Senators and have collected enough phone numbers to make my way through the system. (I've been good about not pissing people off.) Plus: under an SA administration I have lots more material for Calstuff.
The unspoken truth behind APPLE is that it's a lot more fun to be the ragtag Rebel Alliance then the Evil Empire.
I really don't want to do the big post-game analysis of who won and lost, so I'm delegating the job to Brandon.

Perish the thought! Merely trying to become objective about the outcome. Sound journalistic practice...
