Notice they don’t mention his tenure as Chief Justice in the article.

A boat cannot serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. It can, however, serve as Secretary of the Treasury. At the pleasure of the president, of course.

FYI I am the holdup — I need to look at my cards carefully. Will play when I get home.

Speaking of going home, you don’t look at all well @Brooski! I think you should go home sick right now…

Influence gets distributed, +1 to Party Leaders (Hamilton/Madison), +1 to Hamilton/Burr, and +1 per faction.

We are now at the Newspaper phase. @Cuthbert, as leader of the Conservative party, would you like to publish any of your 3 newspapers? There are no Liberal newspapers.

After that, @Cuthbert is up again in the Round, where he may spend influence to make a speech, whip up support, and/or found/improve a newspaper.

Order for the Round is:
@Cuthbert
@Panzeh
@Ironsight
@Navaronegun
@Brooski

Once that is complete, we will bid for the last initiative, this time starting with Panzeh and ending with Cuthbert.

Madison makes a strong speech to his fellow Virginians, who see him as the successor to Jefferson. (Madison rolled a 5. @Brooski, want to spend the extra 1?)
