IF YOU’RE REALLY AMBITIOUS, JOIN THE CHEERLEADING TEAM

My guide to the campus political scene for Yale’s Class of ’09 is up here:

Some Yalies devote themselves to engaging in debate on pressing issues like health-care policy and whether women should be allowed to vote. The latter question is up for debate only at the Yale Political Union, where politicians, policy wonks and the occasional foreign dignitary show up each week to debate the issues and get hissed at by students in bow ties or occasionally receive some approving thigh-striking from students in bow ties. And every week, each of the YPU’s six political parties — three for conservatives, one for liberals, one for people who like drinking and one for people who are running for president — meets to debate the issues that divide its membership (what to drink, women’s suffrage, etc.).
