Some thoughts from the net:
After the election results are in, I promise to:
: Support the President, even if I didn't vote for him.
: Criticize the President, even if I did vote for him.
: Uphold standards of civilized discourse in blogs and in media while pushing both to be better.
: Unite as a nation, putting country over party, even as we work together to make America better.


Some other thoughts from the net:
I hereby pledge that after the election is called, I will run naked through the streets, smeared with war paint, stinking of Jack Daniels and screaming obscenities at my neighbors.
I will do this even if my candidate wins because drunken, naked cursing is fun no matter who the president is.


... I can agree with both of those 'pledges'! Let me also say that if Bush does lose (which I don't believe will happen, and truly hope not) my only remaining hope will be that it is a wake-up call to the Republican party - get back to the Conservative roots you came from! Less spending, smaller government, etc.

... and Prayers/best wishes to/for Dani!

PS - only posting this because the name Ranieri is kinda rare, and I know some ... I doubt they are related it caught my eye nonetheless...

And, from National Review:
"Si non oscillas, noli tintinnare"
... which was engraved on a brass plate above the Playboy Mansion's doorbell. It means, "If you don't swing, don't ring."
