Today marks the one-year anniversary of Riding the Tiger. Our goal has been to provide readers with scholarly insight and historical context of the 2012 election, the presidency and key policy issues. We also like to indulge in occasional whimsical features. Join us in celebrating RTT’s anniversary and the quote that provides the basis for our namesake by entering our caption contest. (It was Harry S. Truman who said, “I discovered that being President is like riding a tiger. A man has to keep on riding or be swallowed.”) 

Enter your caption of the image to the right in the “Comments” to this post by 5 pm tomorrow (Friday, March 1). The winner(s) will receive a coveted Miller Center t-shirt.
