JUST ASKING <br> THREE QUESTIONS FOR ROSS TUCKER

Q. As a former political science major at Princeton, what are your thoughts on the upcoming presidential election?

A. Obviously, I think it's an extremely critical one for our country for the next four years. I know every four years it's a hot topic, but it seems that people in my generation are more involved in it and care more about it. Once you get out of college and start paying bills, you realize that taxes and those types of things are a little more important to you. With us having people, friends and others that we know, over in Iraq, foreign policy weighs a little more heavily on your mind.

Q. If you were president, is there anything you would change?

A. Obviously, I had hoped the Iraq situation would have gone a little more smoothly, so that's one thing. But it's really hard to say because every decision they make has a lot of repercussions. I don't know if all of us outside of the situation really know what all those repercussions would be.

Q. Ever given any thought to pursuing a political office later in life?

A. It's not something that I really think about or have on the horizon, but I wouldn't rule it out, especially on a local level. Being a public servant is a huge responsibility and requires a huge commitment. But I'll never say never about anything. I like to keep my options open.
