    I don't see any mention of health in Article I. I guess that is why the FFs wrote Article II.

    I'd say LBJ not running for a second term, or the First TV debate between Nixon and JFK EASILY beats this.
    LBJ not running for a second term pales in comparison. He was widely unpopular and was not the presumptive pres in waiting as Hill is or maybe was. The Nixon debate is not even in the ball park.

    It is widely presumed Hill has a lock on the next election and there are no next generation dem's with the machinery in place to fill the void.

    I think your memory of those events is fading.

    We're still two years from election time. No candidate has even declared as yet, let alone been nominated. Were Hillary to actually be nominated, then drop dead two days before the general election, then that would be big news. Come to think of it, it may be the only scenario in which the Republican Party could actually win the election without shooting itself in the foot in one way or another. Come to think of it, perhaps a Libertarian might win, if the Inepticans once again manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    It would certainly be an order of magnitude more difficult for democrats. Depends in part on how far in advance it was known Clinton would not run.

    "If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.

    But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns."

    “Already,” Henneberger wrote, “reports that describe Clinton’s right transverse sinus venous thrombosis as potentially life-threatening, though apparently caught in enough time, sound a lot more serious than the word from her doctors that the secretary is ‘making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family and her staff.’”
    Henneberger asked then if we would “really be shocked to learn down the road that reports during her hospitalization had put a positive spin on her condition?”
    “Our public officials have trained us to take everything they say with a healthy dose of skepticism,” Henneberger continued, “and on a matter as sensitive as a head injury followed by denials of any neurological symptoms, I’m not sure why we would or should unquestioningly accept the word of any politician.”
    Some have noted Clinton’s change in appearance, including the addition of thick glasses, since her hospitalization. “One doesn’t need to be a physician… to have seen that Clinton has not appeared exactly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed of late,” Mary Stanik, a former Minnesota health care spokeswoman, wrote in 2013. “She looks to have gained a significant amount of weight since 2008. She seems pale, tired, and yes, aged. She’s said that she would like to know again what it’s like to not be tired.”
    Last year, a Clinton aide acknowledged that her health crisis caused her to stop wearing contact lenses.
    “She’ll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion,” spokesman Philippe Reines told ABC News in 2013. “With them on, she sees just fine.”


    Rumors persist that Hillary won
    If Hillary does not decide to run, Biden will not replace her. I would suggest you look into the Democratic Governors as surly one of them would become the Democratic nominee. You already have O'Malley, MD, Schweitzer MT, Cuomo NY all being talked about as challengers to Clinton with O'Malley already has thrown his hat into the ring and will be challenging Clinton even if she does run. Schweitzer has said he plans on doing the same. Only Cuomo has said he wouldn't run if Hillary does. So there are three governors already and this is not to mention some dark horse like Nixon from MO.

    Biden is going nowhere. Forget him.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    If the election were going to be held in New England and San Francisco, yes. To impute that to the entire country, however, is simply the left-wing equivalent of right-wing fervors that Ted Cruz is unbeatable.

    I think Perotista has a good point - which is that it would then fall to the governors. I don't know if that means Cuomo, but
