Choosing the next DTH Editor

As you may know, the student-run newspaper at UNC has a unique process for selecting its editor each year. When I was an undergrad, the entire campus voted. While this may have led to more representative or popular leaders, some were concerned it didn't lead to very qualified leaders. So now The Daily Tar Heel empanels a secret board (so that members aren't lobbied) who will meet this weekend to vote on the applications, which themselves are public.Anyway, since the DTH has more reporters covering Orange County on a daily basis than other local paper, I reckon we ought to concern ourselves with who gets picked.  This year there are four candidates and there is a platform statement and an article about each candidate at http://www.dailytarheel.com/index.php/section/editor_selection_2011Which one do you like best?
