Women of the System
Not since Nikki Fried has UF had a female student body president, but one thing's for certain, the Women of SG will play a key role in the rebuilding process. I'm not sure how active they'll be in the infighting, but the advent of a serious, female contender and the presidential campaign to follow just might be the calm after the storm.
Paul Drayton, Jordan Johnson, and their respective core of hardliners have already dug themselves in and with even an even deeper, more pronounced riff in FBK (inter alia the Sam Green Block) than in the pre-Access Summer/Fall 2003, I suspect there will be no way for either man to emerge with a united party to support. There's also no chance in hell that either faction would run a GDI for SBP, but there is a possibility that our friend on the right or our friend on the left may have something to say in the matter...our friend in the middle - let's just say even I'm surprised she got this far.
And as much I've received emails from old Access buddies and mixed nutjob emails, I seriously don't think Renfroe is in the category of three ladies pictured above, though, I could see her running with Drayton for veep. There has long been discussion of a Multiculural-Alternative ticket; the AA, Hispanic, & Asian communities have always worked very effectively together. With a strong AA-Hispanic ticket, the Drayton Group might try to re-live Access, minus the GDI's and replacing them with Hispanics -- I wonder who chose Rene Medina anyways?
