I know I shouldn't think about such things, but I can't help but wonder …
What if, G-d forbid, Senator McCain were to suffer a fatal heart attack sometimes between now and November?
Is there anything in the U.S. Constitution about what to do if this sort of thing happens? Would the election be held anyway? If so, who would the Republican candidate(s) be? Or would The Current Occupant declare martial law until calm could be restored? Or, like, what?
Okay, so my suggestions are somewhat facetious. But, seriously, does anybody have any notion about what might actually happen?
