Let me put this as clear as I can (saying this to myself, as well, so I can see it): I WILL get a job with CADD and I WILL keep the job.

Ya, so long as he's willing to go another round at it. I don't want to see him get burnt out from too many months at this at a stretch but so far there have not been any other people wanting to step up to the plate, I presume? Yankee is a great PPT though - and I'd feel no hesitation in supporting him for this role.

Being PPT is no longer Yankee's profession: it's his way of life.

Time is up Kalwejt.


Quote
Section 1: Rules for Conducting the Election of the PPT
1. The President Pro Tempore (PPT) shall be elected by a majority of the Senate in an internal vote of the Senate conducted by the President of the Senate. This vote shall be conducted by preferential vote and the candidate who receives the greatest number of preferential votes shall be elected PPT. If there is tie, the tie-breaking vote shall be cast by the President of the Senate.

2. Following the swearing in of the new Senate at the beginning of each Session, the President of the Senate shall open a thread in the Fantasy Government board for Senators to announce their candidacy for the position of PPT. This thread shall be further known in this document as the PPT Candidacy Declaration Thread and shall be open for forty-eight (48) hours for Senators to declare their candidacy for the position.
3. After forty-eight (48) hours, the PPT Candidacy Declaration Thread shall be closed and a vote on the election of the new PPT shall be opened in a new thread by the President of the Senate. This vote shall last for a maximum of five (5) days during which time the Senators must vote. Any and all Senators who do not vote will be considered to have abstained.

4. If needed, an injunction may be brought by a Senator to keep voting on the election of the new PPT open for another forty-eight (48) hours after which time the voting shall close. This injunction must be seconded by another Senator.

5. Until a candidate for the PPT position has garnered enough preferential votes to achieve a majority, no Senator shall be prohibited from changing his or her vote. Once a candidate for the PPT position has garnered enough preferential votes to achieve a majority, all Senators who have voted will be prohibited from changing their votes.

6. PPT elections do not count towards the restrictions laid out towards in Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 in limiting the amount of legislation on the Senate floor at one time.
