2. you're missing an "nfw" option.

sorry, but this is complete fantasy, and not even a good one. there's just *no way* a significant bunch of party loyalists are going to go against their party-expected function, enough to take away the presidency from the clown that 62 million people voted for.

if he had only 15% support, mayyyybe. if he were proven guilty of a salacious crime, probably.

but as it is, there's just no way they're going to do anything but the automatic, brain-dead thing and rubber stamp him into office.

It's full of party loyalists so no. Renew Deal Dec 2016 #1
