I'm pretty sure I appointed him Secretary of Energy, a position in which he has served admirably.

I'll run again, but with no campaign money - nobody will know about it and I probably won't appear on all ballots in all regions.

I think joltaddict should run for president. It's about time for a female president, and a hot one at that!

I'd run for something, but I don't think I'm very well liked here (if at all). If there was a Village Idiot or Town Drunk, then I might have a shot at one of those.....

From first Secretary of State to the Presidency. You'll be Otterville's very own Thomas Jefferson. You even owned slaves and everything.

i'd say he should run for president but he thinks we're all ants so he'll probably try to squash us all and that's not good. it sounds more like a dictatorship.

Rumors of my affair with Sally Hemmings are all lies, started by those damn Federalists.

I'll consider it - there are a few other people I have to consider first... and I'm also not sure you're not just trying to ride on my celebrity status. I don't wanna just be arm candy.

c'mon, baby... you know you're the only one for me... you complete me... show me the money.


besides - I had to make sure you were still around and willing to run. Wanna take another shot at it? Maybe we'll do better than 16% this time since you aren't currently suspended.

I believe the way we ended it last july was

1 year term limit

Das/Twikoff CAN run again for a second and last term

And Twikoff would officially run the election, but he can appoint anyone he wants to take over for him...


btw, the whole process took about 1.5 weeks last year, so a July 5th (to avoid the holiday lull) party registration and nomination kickoff would be a good start.

BTW, the origional ottter election was a ploy to diffuse the rediculously high tensions surrounding the US presedential election in Otter...it will be fun to see how this plays out in a non election year.

What makes you think I'd run with him again? Perhaps we'll run against one another in a brutal mudslinging affair and throw this great nation into chaos!
