What happens, if for some reason, say, the Democrat candidates were unable to stand for election (plane crash)? What if both pairs were out? What would happen if they were incapacitated after winning the election and before inaugaration?

Last night's debate made me think of something I heard regarding Kerry's senatorial campaign strategy boiling down to banking everything on his endgame (it may have even been in the Blue, but good luck finding that...). Is that true? Can someone shed some light on his previous campaigns?

Iraqi Politics Filter: Does anyone know how the elections in Iraq are going to work? If the Ba'ath party reappeared and wanted to stand, would we let them, or is it only an approved list of parties that are running?
If we don't like the way the election is going, what chance do you think there is that we'll let it go it's course?
If we are asked to leave by the next prime minister, will we go?

after yesterday's speech
, recent discussions (mefi included
) have focused on the potential of illinois' barack obama and the idea that he may, in the near future, sit in the oval office.
which gets me to thinking: what's more realistic/ which will happen first in the united states: a minority president or a woman president
? [more...] [more inside]

It's election day here in Canada, and I have still not made my mind up on who I am going to vote for. I am in Southern Alberta, so it is pretty much decided who is going to win here (last poll had the local Conservatives at 60%), Am I throwing my vote away by voting NDP? Or should I vote "strategically" with the second place party (the Liberal party, which I am not a huge fan of - mainly because of Paul Martin), as an "anyone but conservative" vote?

In the gray, Mathowie wrote, "it's my hope that all Americans take part in the democratic process ... I'm kinda pissed that American Idol logs half as many votes as the entire last presidential election every wednesday night. Get out there and vote, people!" I admit that I haven't voted in ten years. Why should I? [More inside.] [more inside]

In Wisconsin, you don't have to declare a party in order to vote in the primary, which has me wondering, since George W. Bush is a lock on the republican side, why don't republicans vote in the democratic party for the person they think is the least likely to win?
