                  Who would aspire to be our President,
                  Believing him- or herself competent,
                  To bear awesome responsibility
                  To keep our people prosperous and free
                   And lift those who are not so fortunate,
                   By various vicissitudes beset?

                   May such a valiant aspirant be found
                   Who may proceed to valorous renown
                   By leading us to global eminence,
                   Strong in our values and our self-defense.
                   We seek astuteness, character and tact,
                   Which our two candidates have sometimes lacked.
                   So may tonight’s debate clearly reveal
                   More than the artfulness to make a deal.
