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.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
