I was just thinking to myself... I wonder what the policy is, that if... (At this point in the election process) either the Republican or the Democratic candidate was to, "heaven forbid" meet an untimely death? For what ever reason. I pray this would not happen, but just for hypothetical purposes what if it did. Who would be the candidate? If McCain was to Become ill and pass Away (lets Say for the sake of argument) in mid to late September. Does Governor Palin become the Republican Candidate and re-name a new VP. Or Obama and Biden Same Question. Or Does the party nominate a new candidate? Does anyone have any insight on this?
