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.

Let's not turn this into yet another partisan thread.

Oh C'mon Steve, we can't let Boring Bobby Bass' thread be at the top again...since the Election Thread went into Lockdown... laugh

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

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
