That this sphere upon which I reside, Is asleep upon its feet.
Should I go back to sleep?

President Bartlet: I don’t want to be killed.

Toby: Then make this election about smart, and not... Make it about engaged, and not. Qualified, and not. Make it about a heavyweight. You’re a heavyweight. And you’ve been holding me up for too many rounds.
