    Thanks for the nomination Cyc, but I must decline since I'm running for President.

    I will second Bill_in_PDX, even though I have little hope that he will choose to return to this particular role.

    Yes, I think it's time I took a break from the Judiciary for a while and get back into the meat of the Demogame :)
    So I must decline my nominations for this position, and wish luck to the candidates!

    Good luck Veera, I will be sure to vote for you. I hope I can do as good a job as you did at CJ. (Provided I win, which at this stage seems pretty likely)

    I will accept this nomination. Perhaps I will give Naervod a better race than I gave Bill_in_PDX oh so long ago.... ;)

    You had to bring out the old man in me, didn't you Forty?

    Technically, the only contested election I've ever won was in Term 1, when I beat out Bill and donsig for Chief Justice. The memories....

    I second FortyJ, and again encourage Ekelektikos to run after his rather undecisive post.

    Actually, I was here when Bill gave you a run for your money so it can't have been that long ago.
