Not to think it will happen. If Palin becomes President she will have long since gotten rid of Pelosi and anyone she disagrees with.

That would be hysterical.

President Palin and Vice President Pelosi.

But just for the sake of accuracy, that isn't how it would work. Palin would be able to nominate a vice-president of her choosing, see Spiro Agnew and Gerald Ford.

To be honest, I think Pelosi scares me more (politically) than even Obama, and (generally - in terms of child nightmares) more then any night terror I ever had as a kid.

After Kennedy's assassination Lyndon Baines Johnson immediately became the acting president. He had no vice president from that fateful day in 1963 to 1969.


I believe the line of succession to which you are referring has to do with the loss of the president and vice president during their term.
