In Response to: Princeton for President!

Congratulations on PAW’s thoughtful and timely piece on Princeton presidents and candidates. Especially apt was the juxtaposition of the quote from Bill Bradley ’65, the best qualified Tiger never to reach our highest office — “If people of idealism don’t go into politics, you abdicate that to people who misuse the system to their own advantage or will be ideologues that will polarize the country or more,” which provided the lead-in to the profile of Ted Cruz ’92. ’Nuff said.
