Greetings Future Secretary! I will be sorry to lead the popular revolt against you but you tragically overstepped your office. Nobody will elect the Secretary of the Interior. Until 2052.

That will be too bad, eRobin. I will hope you'll change your future mind, 'cause I will have had you pegged for Bureau of Indian Affairs.

If you don't change your mind, any Indian Affairs will have to be conducted on your own time.

It will have been scurrilous and oddly seductive comments like that that will have earned my wrath. Will you have never learned?

Though it certainly will never have been my intent to cause offense, and I will maintain that my remarks will be taken out of context and misinterpreted unfairly, in a manner in which my political opponents will have had a long history of doing similarly, I will have liked to take a future opportunity to apologize for any remarks I may have been going to make that anyone will have subsequently and mistakenly found offensive.

Oh, it will have always been about the slick talk with you, Clarke!

Okay! Uncle! You win. Just like you will have won in 2034 - don't even think of asking me to explain it now. You'll have to wait until it shows up on Future Search.
