10.6 – Veep Debate Recap, Constitutional Sound Bite, and Bre Payton of ‘The Federalist’

I started out discussing Tuesday’s debate – the one where Mike Pence was thoroughly Presidential and Tim Kaine was not. These are some of the stories about it that caught my attention:

Constitutional Sound Bites – David Shestokas

Once we got around to the book, we talked about what the Constitution originally said about what happens when the President dies –> the Vice President would assume the responsibilities but NOT the title. That was later amended and now the VP BECOMES the President.

Listen to the isolated segment here:

HausGuest – Bre Payton

Bre writes on culture, among other things, for one of my favorite sites, The Federalist. We were able to go through the entire segment with only the smallest mention of the Presidential contest!
