Here is a scarry thought (keep in mind this isn't a Bush-bash, just an odd conspiracy possibility).
What if a MAJOR "terrorist attack"- just as a nuclear event in a major city on election day, or an emp attack made it impossible to tally votes or
to even hold the election?
What happens then I wonder?
1. Bush stays for a while longer- with his administration basically making up the new rules on what constitutes "safe enough for an election"?
2. Bush steps down and puts Cheney in for the same scenario as number 1, so as not to overstay his 8 years?
3. Republicans with the backing of the Supreme Court effectively coup and install the Speaker of the House as interim president?
