What happens if the President-elect dies two days after his victory, but before the electoral college meets? The rules fly out the window, as we see in this cautionary tale by Jeff Greenfield. As power plays, bidding wars, and media frenzy fly like confetti at a victory parade, the fate of the presidency rests on the shoulders of 538 obscure shopkeepers, civil servants, retirees, and party faithfuls--including an office manager from Michigan who's a little tired of being told what to do by men in blue suits. Maybe, she thinks, it's time to do something about it. The Republic may never be the same.About the Author:
Jeff Greenfield is the CBS News senior political correspondent, and a veteran of CNN and ABC News. A four-time Emmy Award winner, he is the author or co-author of eleven books. He lives in New York City.
