The powerlessness of faculty politics

The Woessners
On Election Day 2008, MoneyLaw takes a quick look at faculty politics. By "faculty politics," if only for this day, I mean the electoral preferences of college professors.

Do professors' political proclivities influence their students' views? According to April Kelly-Woessner and Matthew Woessner, authors of Investigating the Impact of Politics in the Classroom: Considering Whether Students Recognize and React to Faculty Politics, the answer appears to be "no."

I'm not sure what the purpose of this post is. Are professors seeking to affect student politics and failing? Does this prove that professors do not seek to change student political commitments? It seems to me that the MoneyLaw professor would enable each student to best formulate and defend his or her political commitments, no?
