    Hmmm, never heard of a President O'Neill, so I'm gonna say no. Here's a hint for ya, the heads of our three branches of federal government are Speaker of the House, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and President of the United States. You're right about W, though, that drunk driving mo fo.

    Who said:

    -" They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little
    temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

    -"Cogito ergo sum" ( and what does it mean )

    -"You see things that were and ask,'Why?' I dream of things
    that never were and ask, 'Why not?' "

    -" It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points
    out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of
    deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the
    man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred
    by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly
    ; who errs and comes short again and again;
    who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and
    spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows
    in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at
    worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly;
    so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid
    souls who know neither victory or defeat. "
    "Think not but that I know these things; or think
    I know them not: not therefore am I short
    Of knowing what I ought."
    -John Milton, Paradise Regained (1671)
