That's right. Nancy Pelosi! Now I haven't the faintest idea of the mind boggling complexities of the mathematics involved in the voting procedures, but here's a scenario that may unfold in case of a dead heat.

The closer the election gets - and right now the polls have it very tight indeed - the greater the chance that a tie of 269 to 269 will occur.

If a stalemate results, the constitution provides that the vice-president-elect would become acting president until the gridlock is broken.

However, what if the Senate gets tied up in parliamentary knots? It's been known to happen.

Then America is likely to get its first female President, at least until the deadlock is broken. No, she won't be named Hillary Clinton, nor will the acting chief be Sarah Palin. Next-in-line will be the Speaker of the House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

Hmmm... Now that's weird!

Traveling Nancy the Prez?

The stuff that nightmares are made of.

Maybe she can weasel in the 747 she wants while she's the Prez....

She will become the preseident if Dick and Boy Bush both kick the bucket before the election, which IMO is more likely. Whether they were purposfully assassinated, there would be a moment of chaos which would be the perfect 'excuse' to suspec the elections.

Edit: As many here have pointed out I beleive that the 2 party elections are already "Decided" so I doubt thre would actually be a tie.
