IF Something Should Happen

There has been a lot of talk in different groups lately about people (KKK, White Suppremicists, etc) wanting to assinate President Elect Obama.
This has got me to thinking IF something SHOULD happen who would become president? Would it go to McCain (since he came in 2nd in the running) or would it go to Vice President Elect Biden?
Please know that I am in NO way agreeing or wishing that anything would happen to ANYBODY. Although I did not vote for him I am fine with giving him 4 years to see if he can screw it up anymore. I am just curious what would happen in this situation.

  • It depends on WHEN. There is a day in December (can't think exactly what day) where, if it happens before that time, the House will make a choice. If it were to happen AFTER that day, then it would go to Biden. At no point in time would it just automatically go to McCain.

  • It would go to Biden. That's how it goes, there's a whole line of people in line for the president if God forbid something should happen.

  • It would go to Biden, but let's not think of that and keep positive.  While I didn't vote for Obama, I wish no harm on him or his family.  I want him to prove me wrong and push through more centrist ideals for this country.
