follow those stories - that presidential tie
It could be much worse than the Washington Times suggests. In the event of an electoral college tie, the House of Representatives will elect the president. BUT..... each state gets one vote. Could there be state delegations evenly split who will never be able to choose one way or the other?
Think it's all beyond the pale. It's past a non-zero possibility at least. Long ago I recalled my days as a defense analyst and some of the pathological possibilities that go into planning for presidential succession.
