The end is near. Doomsday prophecies aside, the school year is nearly complete and for a lot of Badgers, myself included, it means our time in college is nearly over as well. Compared to the life ahead of us, college is but a small fraction of time.

More than the friendships, classes, parties and Union Terrace, college is a remarkable opportunity to challenge yourself and in so doing, discover your potential.

Unfortunately, this deal did not include any measures to prevent Congress from imposing a self-inflicted wound yet again; it was simply a short term fix that punted the problem down the road until January. The debt-ceiling fight wasn’t even pushed back until after the midterm elections. Meeting the debt ceiling would have been unprecedented and dangerous. Because Congress has toyed with the dangerous notion of not raising the debt ceiling, the power to raise it should be unilaterally placed in the president’s power.
While Mary Burke is a formidable opponent, she faces an uphill battle to win the race to 2 E. Main St. and unseat the political juggernaut that is Gov. Scott Walker. The governor has money, connections and judging by the 2011 recall election results, at least 53.1 percent of Wisconsin on his side. Many people don’t want a recycle of the 2011 recall, so in order for Ms. Burke to have a chance, she’ll have to gear up, grab the handles, get a grip and cross the finish line to the governor’s mansion.
