As principal he must remain neutral, but finally concludes that scatterbrained Archie would be marginally better than conniving Reggie. With the election a tie, both boys clamor for Betty's vote, she having been out sick. Despite her resentment of how Archie has favored Veronica, Betty concludes that Reggie would be a bad choice. Mr. Weatherbee privately congratulates her, and advises Reggie to run for vice-president because second best to Archie is better than nothing.
