“What if just to mess up the Democrats, Bush resigned this week.

What if, when Dick Cheney became president, he appointed Condoleezza Rice as his VP.

What if Dick Cheney then resigned.

Condie would be the first black president and the first woman president.

It would be so sweet.”

  1. One wonders why that would be sweet. It is not the ascension to a high office by a black man (or a woman) that is notable, but the election to it by a public majority which is notable.

    Also, besides, the 25th Amendment says: “Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.” So even if the proposed plan were sweet, it would be far from a done deal.
