Sen. Patrick Leahy [D-VT] formally sworn in as U.S. Senate President pro Tem
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Just after 11:30 A.M. Eastern Standard Time (1630 GMT) on Tuesday 18 December 2012, Senator Patrick Leahy [Democrat-VERMONT] was sworn in as President pro Tempore of the United States Senate by Vice-President Joe Biden in replacement of the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye [Democrat-HAWAII] who had passed away the day before. At the end of the brief ceremony in the well of the Senate Chamber in Washington, DC, Vice-President Biden was heard telling Senator Leahy it was "a bittersweet moment".

The President pro Tempore- the officer of the United States Senate specifically charged with determining who presides over that body during the course of an ordinary legislative day (but, of course, only when the Vice-President of the United States- who is, after all, the constitutional 'President of the [U.S.] Senate'- is not occupying the Presiding Officer's chair!)- is, by 20th (and now 21st) Century tradition, the longest-serving United States Senator of the political Party in control of the United States Senate by virtue of numbers of Senators willing to caucus within said Party. Senator Leahy was first sworn in as a U.S. Senator on 3 January 1975, earlier in time than any other incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator

What to look for come ELECTION 2012
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Readers should not be misled by the confident tone of the literature (and my own observations) into confusing opinion with established truth.--

Historian ERIC HOBSBAWM

I very much doubt that any readers of my verbiage on The Green Papers- whether they might like (or, however grudgingly, respect) what I might write hereon or merely think me an abject "nutcase"- would at all confuse my opinion with "established truth" (and one certainly hopes Mr. Hobsbawm was being altogether 'tongue-in-cheek' with his parenthetical statement as quoted above): however, having duly noted the foregoing "truth", I- as I ever try my utmost to do- proceed onward herein with "confident tone" in any event!

As most people already know, come Tuesday 6 November 2012, the 50 States of the American Union- along with the District of Columbia- will ...

Re: Any contingencies for ELECTION DAY re: adverse effects from Tropical Cyclone/Nor'easter 'Sandy'
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson of TheGreenPapers.com Staff

I apologize for the rather perfunctory nature of this post but I happen to live in the State of NEW JERSEY (currently getting fairly hammered by Tropical Cyclone 'Sandy') and I'm trying to get this one posted hereon before I might lose power and, thereby, not so easily be able to access the Internet-- but, today, I was asked- by a friend- what might happen to ELECTION DAY should, for instance, electric power still be out in many areas within the eastern portion of the United States of America come Tuesday 6 November 2012.

There is no provision per se for postponing the Election: Federal law- adopted by Congress under its own powers specifically granted it by the United States Constitution- requires the "appointment" of Presidential Electors (what is really going on during a 'Presidential Election'), along with the choosing of United States Senators and members of the U.S. House of Representatives on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November... in addition, State law (usually as a provision of the respective State Constitutions themselves) require elections for Governors, other Statewide elective officers, State legislators and other local elective officials (those from Counties, Municipalities, other sub-County Civil Divisions and/or equivalent) to be chosen on that same first Tuesday after the first Monday in November!

This may well have been addressed by State officials elsewhere but, specifically, during one of the 'Sandy'-related "pressers" held by my own State's Governor Chris Christie yesterday (Sunday 28 October 2012), brief reference (without much detail, it should be noted) was made to a conference call among Secretaries of State or equivalent Election-enforcement officials (such as my State's Lieutenant Governor, Kim Guadagno) in those States affected by 'Sandy' re: possible contingency plans for holding the 6 November General Election under potentially less than optimum conditions.

My own assumption is that officials in all States adversely affected by this storm are- right now (and rightfully so!)- far more involved with dealing with the effects of 'Sandy' (just as they, again rightfully, will be so dealing with its immediate aftermath) and that- towards the end of this week, going into the weekend (that is: once the threats from the storm will have subsided)- they will more discuss, where not also implement, any such contingency plans, where they might be necessary.

But please know ELECTION 2012 must go on as scheduled!

As I type this, it is now just about two weeks until General Election Day here in the United States of America-- and it can't come soon enough now!

I don't know about you, gentle reader, but I find that-once the final Presidential Debate has been held- there seems nothing left but the anticipation for what the result of the Election actually will be. I don't really feel this way about the Midterm Elections (The Green Papers has now covered three of these) or the Off-Year (in odd-numbered years) Elections (six so far during the online lifespan of this website)-- perhaps because there is a long enough gap between the last set of ....

Round 1: Concern[ing] Libya-- the controversy over what happened there continues: four Americans are dead, including an American ambassador; questions remain. What happened? What caused it? Was it spontaneous? Was it an intelligence failure? Was it a policy failure? Was there an attempt to mislead people about what really happened?

Governor Romney answered first: "This is obviously an area of great concern to the entire world- and to America in particular- which is to see a change in the structure and the environment in the Middle East. With the 'Arab Spring' came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women in public life and in economic life in the Middle East: but, instead, we've seen- in nation after nation- a number of disturbing events...

Commentary:
Why a Presidential Debate on Foreign Policy might yet loom
large during an Election campaign focused on the Economy

by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Apparently, I am pretty much all alone on the "island" (or- much more likely- I got voted off the island in some Political Punditry version of something along the lines of the reality show Survivor!) but I seem to be one of the few- at most- who honestly think that this last Presidential Debate of 2012 focusing on (well-- at least it's supposed to be focusing on) Foreign Policy may well have no little effect on the eventual outcome of the upcoming Presidential Election.

Of course, I am well aware that the Economy is, indeed, the overriding Issue of the Day as Americans go about choosing the man who will be serving as President after Noon Eastern Time US (1700 GMT) next 20 January and that the efforts by each Major Party campaign- in trying their utmost to attract that as yet undecided, mostly independent, "bell curve" voters in the Center of the current nationwide political landscape- is largely geared to this reality; I am also aware that ...

With the Entertainment Portion of our program (in the form of last week's Vice-Presidential Debate) having been completed, the 2012 Presidential Election campaign now runs headlong into the "turn" coming immediately off of the "Back Straight"- a turn in the form of the Second Presidential Debate (the Third Presidential Debate a week hence will, therefore, mark the "final turn" going into the "Home Stretch").

First of all, let me point out (this in answer to a couple e-mails I recently received asking me about this) that- yes- I do treat a Vice-Presidential Debate at least somewhat differently than the Presidential Debates in the same Presidential Election Cycle but only in this one respect: I presume that what the running mates each might say is ...
