        Duly noted.  But since the secretary's job routinely involves
 running votes and DPL elections in which I have strong opinions, and
 interpreting the constitution is an integral part of the process, I
 would not be secretary if I did not think I could do my job
 impartially despite that.  

        If it appears to me that my judgement as secretary is being
 affected, I shall immediately  recuse myself and delegate the power.

After all is said and done, a hell of a lot more is said than done.
