Alright Global President 2008 is done for anyone who wants it and I plan on sending it in to theoryspark soon. Now to this scenario idea. Here's a timeline of events leading up to it.

  • November 14, 2008 Barack Obama is shot.
  • November 18, 2008- Joe Biden opens a court case claiming that because the President-elect was shot and he was the vice-president elect he should be the new president-elect
  • The GOP hires several lawyers to help with the case against the democrats
  • December 29, 2008- The Supreme court rules against Biden declaring that McCain is the new president elect as he finished second in the race
  • January 11, 2009- The supreme court allows the DNC to appeal the ruling that John McCain is president-elect
  • January 19, 2009- The day before inaguaration day the supreme court rules 5-4 in favor of the DNC ruling that there is no president-elect
  • January 20, 2009- Joe Biden is inagurated as the new vice president.
  • Febuary 18, 2009- Congress decides a special election will be held for president on Novemeber 2, 2010 along with the usually mid-term elections
  • Summer of 2009- Everything starts going well for Bush. Iraq insurgancy is at an all time low, the economy has recovered, and Bush has proven himself to be capable of compromise while working with the massive Democrat majority in Congress.
  • September 11, 2009- Bush declares that the war in Iraq is over and that all troops will be out by Christmas 2010.
  • September 11, 2009- Bush's approval rating climb above 50% for the first time in years.

If Obama gets shot God forbid before ignaguration day Biden becomes president. There would be no court case.

Yes truly God forbid, but anyway I'm not so sure about that. Since Obama would never have been president, there would be no line of succession and since Biden recieved 0 votes for president they might not make him president. In addtion this is a scenario so anything that is possible goes.

Wait, the Supreme Court rules in favor of the Republicans, and then immediately overturns their decision after the DNC appeals?

I know this is just a scenario, but Bush would not get a free half a term. Pelosi would be President if there was no one to succeed him. If the unthinkable were to happen Biden would win IRL, though. The votes are for Obama/Biden electors, who would all vote for Biden.

In case anyone wanted the specific rule...

20th Amendment, Section 3: "If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President."

What the **** is wrong with you people? He won... GET OVER IT! He isn't going to get shot. I know you want it, but it isn't going to happen. He's got the greatest security force in the history of the world and HE WON so stop projecting your hatred and try to do something creative!

Dude we're talking about another scenario. We all agree Obama getting shot is not only almost impossible but would be horrible.

Its a fucking scenario, the same as what would happen if kenndy hadn't been shot. It's NO DIFFERENT. You need to cool down.

Alright this scenario doesn't work since I was wrong about the whole president elect thing and just wait till theoryspark puts it on their scenario page because that should only be a few days from now.

Theoryspark is really slow in putting them up.
