Right.  And to reiterate, this is more a fuzzy feeling on my part and
not something I would want to pursue regulating.  I think people want
to know as voters -- I know I do -- that the person I'm electing has
the intention of following through in that position, regardless of any
other commitments.  And I'm not implying that anyone would do any
differently than that.
