Election

Tracy Flick will always be one of those film characters that you will love and hate because people like her do exist. They're irritating yet you can't help but admire them for their willingness to be the best. I guess there's a Tracy Flick in all of us. At times, when placed in dire situations that can make or break our futures, we are willing to sabotage, lie, and cheat in order to win. It's what makes us human--survival of the fittest.
