Who becomes President?

10 posts in this topic

After reading an article about the block surrounding the Obama's house being turned into a virtual fortress I wondered aloud. If he was to be killed, who would then become the "President Elect"? Since the VP didn't go thru the whole primary proccess and wasn;t actually "elected", He/she was merely selected as the running mate. Is there a new election, does Hillary get the Nod, or does in fact the "VP Elect" Become the "President Elect", and He or She pick a new VP?

If GW and DC get off'd, then GASP.....Nancy Pelosi becomes President, but I have never learned what happenes if it is the "Pres Elect".

If the president-elect dies before taking the oath of office, the VP-elect would be sworn in as president, and would then choose a new VP.

If the pres-elect and VP-elect both die before taking the oath, then the presidential succession would continue (speaker of the House, president pro tempore of the Senate, and so forth), which would put Pelosi in as president, also allowing her to pick her own VP.

At least His View Record was Finally Surpassed...though Not Accurately... grin
