Default Can I get lines centered next to text extending the entire page?

Trying to think of good formatting for my resume, and I wanted to test this idea out.

It's hard to describe in words, so I'll include an image (crudely created by inserting lines), but I'm trying to get a word or two centered with lines extending out from them filling the entire page - the lines being centered vertically on the words.

This is what I'm trying to get - I created that effect by just drawing in two lines, but with simple human precision, it's practically impossible to get them properly spaced, making it look weird.



Any ideas on how I can achieve this effect?

Simple:
1. Use a left-aligned paragraph with a centre tab-stop in the centre and a right-aligned tab-stop on the right.
2. Insert tab characters before & after your text
3. Format the tab characters with the 'strike-through' font attribute.

All I could come up with was using a three-column table and appropriate cell borders. Your method should be much more flexible.
