The 2012 presidential election is less than a week away, and the deciding factor could once again be the youth vote.

Last year in my weekly opinion column, I frequently wrote in support of Gov. Mitt Romney. I truly believed he was the best candidate in the presidential race, but perspective changes, and I was wrong. Throughout his career, the GOP primary and the general election, Gov. Romney has consistently proven himself unfit to be president of the United States and incapable of – or unwilling to — unite our divided nation.

We celebrate the 50th anniversary of integration at Ole Miss this year. This anniversary happens to take place four years after the nation watched the man who would become the first black president debate his opponent right here in Oxford. We should all take a moment to appreciate just how far our nation and community have come.
We’ve evolved dramatically in the past several decades but the growth has not come without pains. This university had to endure riots, tens of thousands of National Guard soldiers and the loss of two lives before accepting integration.

Hopefully, many of you watched this year’s series of presidential debates on television. I have not been able to catch all of them; however, I have seen the majority, including the vice presidential debate. One facet of every evening that caught my eye was the lack of civility the candidates had towards one another and towards the moderator.

The second presidential debate Tuesday night featured two candidates with remarkably similar ideals, nitpicking over taxes and practically nothing else.
While what President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said might have had a large effect on the election, the lack of any other candidates makes an enormous difference, for the worse. Without opening the debates to potentially viable third party candidates, the U.S. will make very little progress in creating a better tomorrow.
