I gotta ask though: Has the incumbent President ever had someone in his own Party try to replace him? If so, has the newby(can't think of correct term :D ) ever defeated an incumbent President?

I don't believe it has happened within the same party for a Presidential Election, but I could be wrong. I just wanted to post to call you a cheater :D

I voted for Kerry. I think while he has his drawbacks, he's the guy I could most stomach being in the Whitehouse. I wouldn't mind Lieberman either, but it aint gonna happen. Of course, Bush will destroy whoever he faces.

Not HIllary, but Bill - again.

1) Since he WAS the President he cannont run for President - 2 term limit,
but he CAN run for Vice-President.

2) As Vice-President he can assume the Office of President if the President
were to resingn, or pass away while in office. He just cannot run for re-election.

3) It would fulfill the wishes of the Right Wing Conservatives to have someone to dispise.
I don't think Bill could be vp either
Did anyone look up to see if Bill Clinton could be VP?

I've spoken with a few people and they believe having Bill in as VP would have just of good as an effect as having Hillary as VP and still sets her up to go for Prez later.

Edit: I found it, Amendment XII excludes Bill Clinton:

But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

Interesting. Does this mean Bush-lite could run for a third term in 2008 since he wasn't really elected in 2000? (Assuming he wins or is reappointed in 2004, of course.)

:evil:
