At that age, Grassley sound more like the Father of the Senate (in the British Parliamentary tradition). :P

But indeed, you are very correct. Party majority and minority leaders and whips in either chamber don't exist on paper in Constitutional reckoning as positions mentioned ONCE - nor even do actual political themselves, interestingly enough. The Constitution is UTTERLY SILENT on the institution.

They didn't truly come into being until the early 20th century as the Dem-Rep party machines became more defined.

This conversation assumes they would all die simultaneously (heaven forbid). If Biden were to pass (heaven forbid) first after becoming President, VP Sanders would take over, and then appoint someone else as VP. So, if Sanders also then passed (heaven forbid), his newly appointed VP would become President. No need to worry about Pelosi or Grassley then also (heaven forbid) passing at some later point - it would make no difference.

So the question actually would be who would Sanders appoint as VP were he to become President?

Have you read Tom Clancy's "Jack Ryan," or Jean Johnson's "Mables," series of fiction?

Read The Hunt for Red October …

The "Hunt for Red October," is, unfortunately, completely unrelated to what I'm referring to. :(

Sanders would probably choose Gabbard, Warren, Nina Turner or Kamala Harris
