Can the president even appoint a vice president? I don't remember that in the constitution. Did Ford appoint a VP when Nixon resigned in '73? Seem to me we just didn't have a VP then- and the Speaker of the House was next in line for the Presidency. President Pelosi, anyone? I don't think Republican could handle that even for a day!

I checked this and you are correct: If the Vice President succeeds the President, he can choose a Vice President. But should the new President leave office, the Presidency does not transfer to the new Vice President . . that power transfers to the Speaker of the House. You were on it.

And, No, I'm sure the Republicans could not stomach seeing Pelosi become President, if only for a few weeks. (Then again, that would result in a woman becoming President before a "person of color".)

I guess the Republicans cannot do it by election, only by underhanded tricks, how typical. Obama was ELECTED, Rice would not be. Republicans don't care about that, just look at Florida 2000!

Will you guys ever get over the 2000 election?

Recounts by major news organizations done after the election showed that Al Gore would have lost Florida even if the courts hadn't stopped the recounting.

Bush won the electoral vote in 2000 fair and square.

It wasn't just a matter of counting votes Brandon- there was a lot that stunk about that election- starting with the governor being Bush's brother, the head of the elections office a Republican party operative (who later ran as a Republican candidate) and most of election office staff were ardent Republicans. And the election was full of so called "clerical errors" which just always happen work to the advantage of Republicans- Democrats being mysteriously and improperly dropped from voter rolls or assigned to the wrong precinct, a confusing ballot in Palm Beach county that had many Democrats voting for Buchanan when they meant to vote for Gore, voter precincts in black dominated northern counties being understaffed, closing early and many blacks being turned away, etc, etc, etc. Add all these into the mix and it could have easily cost Gore the election.

1. The confusing ballot was designed by the Democratic Party.

2. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted a six-month investigation of the charges and found absolutely no evidence of systematic disenfranchisement of black voters. The civil-rights division of the Department of Justice also found no credible evidence that any Floridians were intentionally denied the right to vote.

3. From USA Today, 5/15/01:

George W. Bush would have won a hand count of Florida's disputed ballots if the standard advocated by Al Gore had been used, the first full study of the ballots reveals. Bush would have won by 1,665 votes more than triple his official 537-vote margin if every dimple, hanging chad and mark on the ballots had been counted as votes, a USA TODAY/Miami Herald/Knight Ridder study shows. The study is the first comprehensive review of the 61,195 "undervote" ballots that were at the center of Florida's disputed presidential election.

The lack of credible evidence is pretty convincing that the disenfranchisement story is a myth.

From The Wall Street Journal:

"In June 2001, following a six-month investigation that included subpoenas of Florida state officials from Governor Jeb Bush on down, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report that found no evidence of voter intimidation, no evidence of voter harassment, and no evidence of intentional or systematic disenfranchisement of black voters.

Headed by a fiercely partisan Democrat, Mary Frances Berry, the Commission was very critical of Florida election officials (many of whom were Democrats). For example, "Potential voters confronted inexperienced poll workers, antiquated machinery, inaccessible polling locations, and other barriers to being able to exercise their right to vote." But the report found no basis for the contention that officials conspired to disenfranchise voters. "Moreover," it said, "even if it was foreseeable that certain actions by officials led to voter disenfranchisement, this alone does not mean that intentional discrimination occurred," let alone racial discrimination.

The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division conducted a separate investigation of these charges and also came up empty. In a May 2002 letter to Democratic Senator Pat Leahy of Vermont, who at the time headed the Judiciary Committee, Assistant Attorney General Ralph Boyd wrote, "The Civil Rights Division found no credible evidence in our investigations that Floridians were intentionally denied their right to vote during the November 2000 election."


"Which leaves the "stolen election" crowd with these inconvenient facts: In 24 of the 25 Florida counties with the highest ballot spoilage rate, the county supervisor was a Democrat."

That "no evidence was found" doesn not mean something didn't happen. There were certainly many reports in the media down here of Democrats going to the polls and finding their name was not on the roll- either because they had not be informed of a precinct change- or were dropped altogether from the rolls. There would be no "smoking gun" for these so-called "clerical errors"- and you can bet the elections office did all they could to hide what was done.

As for the Palm Beach ballot- a study showed Buchanan got a disproportionate larger number of votes there then in any other county of the state. The only logical explanation for this is that he got many votes that were intended for Gore- enough in fact to have changed the election.

The scrub list in Florida 2000 was over 20,000. Out of those, a disaportionate amount were people of color. Generally, who do those people usually vote for?
We will never "get over" a stolen election. If the Bushies were soooooooooooo confident they could win the recount, why in the world did they stop it?
