Tomorrow's diary will be the last one in this series. The final cutoff will be Midnight tonight. As such it will be an abbreviated version, however, I have asked our many fine volunteers to share their thoughts with the community. I hope you'll do them the honor of taking a look.

(Yes, I know. It's not technically the "First 100 Hours" in the "Speaker Pelosi" sense. But since this series won't be around then, just look at it as the "First 100 Hours" after the election. Patronize us, Mmmmkay?)
