25th Amendment. You’re assuming (1) Biden resigns, (2) Obama appoints Hillary VP,and (3) Obama then resigns. Not very likely, but theoretically possible.
And it all has to happen before 12/21/2012.
Correct. Of course, if Biden resigns, dies or becomes incapacitated, Obama can nominate anybody, or anybody who meets the eligibility requirements.
Of course, the nomination still has to make it thru a majority vote of both houses of Congress.
Just a minor alteration makes it happen.
Step 3. Obama then takes a stroll in Fort Marcy Park.
Don’t forget; we’re dealing with the Klintoons here!
