Who Will Decide the Replacement for Joe Biden?

If Joe Biden is mentally impaired, he will be replaced. Can we all agree on that, please? The Democrats are not stupid and putting someone on the campaign trail with a known mental problem isn’t going to work even in this insane world.

As I described in another article, the Democratic National Committee can replace Joe Biden with anyone they choose as soon as he accepts the nomination in his basement at the virtual convention. This isn’t me talking — this is the Congressional Research Office — part of the Library of Congress.

Again, to be perfectly clear, this would involve a lot of crying by Joe Biden on television saying that he has just received a diagnosis and, for the good of the country, he must withdraw. When the DNC announces their selection to replace Biden, all of the primary candidates would immediately endorse them — having already negotiated their positions in the next government.

Some have suggested “but the base won’t like this.” It will be up to the MSM to amplify how tragic this is and how critical it is to have a new nominee immediately so that every moment forward is focused on defeating the impeached Orange Man.

Who, exactly, makes up the DNC?

The Democratic National Committee shall be composed of:
(a) the Chairperson and the highest-ranking officer of another gender of each recognized
state Democratic Party and of the Democratic Parties of Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands;
(b) two hundred additional members apportioned to the states on the basis set forth in Article Two, Section 5(a) of the Charter, consistent with the full participation goals of Sections 3 and 4 of Article Eight of the Charter; provided that each state shall have at least two such additional members;
(c) two additional members, consisting of one national committeeman and one national
committeewoman, from each of Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa and the Northern Mariana;
(d) the Chairperson of the Democratic Governors’ Association and two additional governors, of whom, at least one shall be of another gender of the Chairperson, as selected by the Association;
(e) the Democratic Leader in the United States Senate and the Democratic Leader in the
United States House of Representatives and one additional member of each body, who shall be of another gender of, and appointed by, the respective leaders;
(f) the Chairperson, the five Vice Chairpersons, the National Finance Chair, the Treasurer, and the Secretary of the DNC;
(g) the Chairperson of the National Conference of Democratic Mayors and two additional
mayors, at least one of whom shall be of another gender of the Chairperson, as selected by the Conference;
(h) the President of the Young Democrats of America and two additional members, at least one of whom shall be of another gender as the President, as selected by the organization biennially in convention assembled;
(i) the Chairperson of the Democratic County Officials and two additional county officials, at least one of whom shall be of another gender as the Chairperson, as selected by the organization;
(j) the Chairperson of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and two additional state legislators, at least one of whom shall be of another gender as the Chairperson, as selected by the Committee;
(k) the Chairperson of the National Democratic Municipal Officials Conference and two
additional municipal officials, at least one of whom shall be of another gender as the Chairperson, as selected by the Conference;
(l) the President of the National Federation of Democratic Women and two additional
members selected by the Federation;
(m) the President of the College Democrats of America and the Vice President, who shall be of another gender, as elected by the organization annually;
(n) the Chairperson of the National Association of Democratic State Treasurers and the Vice Chair who shall be of another gender, as selected by the Association;
(o) the Chairperson of the National Association of Democratic Lieutenant Governors and the Vice Chair who shall be of another gender, as selected by the Association;
(p) the Chairperson of the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State and the Vice Chair who shall be of another gender, as selected by the Association;
(q) the Chairperson of the Democratic Attorneys General Association and one additional
attorney general who shall be of another gender of the Chairperson, as selected by the Association;
(r) the Chairperson of the National Democratic Ethnic Coordinating Committee, who is not otherwise a member of the Democratic National Committee and one additional member, who shall be of another gender, as selected by the Coordinating Committee;
(s) the Chairperson of the National Democratic Seniors Coordinating Council, who is not otherwise a member of the Democratic National Committee and one additional member, who shall be of another gender, as selected by the Coordinating Council;
(t) additional members as provided in Article Nine of this Charter. No more than seventy five additional members of the Democratic National Committee may be added by the foregoing members.

So that looks like 400 or so people. The proof is left to the student. By comparison, the number of delegates to the convention is something like 5,000. This is simply to show that getting a consensus after the convention is considerably easier than before or during. If Biden were to withdraw during the virtual convention, it would be a mess beyond comprehension. If the convention were actually being held, it would have made for awesome television so the pandemic is going to rob us of that as well!

A special meeting to fill a vacancy on the National ticket shall be held on the call of the Chairperson, who shall set the date for such meeting in accordance with the procedural rules provided for in Article Two, Section 8(d) of these Bylaws.

Article Two, Section 8(d) states:

All questions before the Democratic National Committee shall be determined by majority vote of those members present and voting in person or by proxy.

The Bylaws also state “for purposes of voting to fill a vacancy on the National ticket, a quorum shall be a majority of the full membership present in person.” Also, “proxy voting shall not be permitted in voting to fill a vacancy on the National ticket.” Yeah, you want to see their face and check their ID before you let them vote!

The DNC doesn’t have a process per se to determine who would be considered to replace Biden other than “voting to fill a vacancy on the National ticket shall be in accord with procedural rules
adopted by the Rules and Bylaws Committee and approved by the Democratic National Committee.”

I suppose the upshot of all of this is that if replacing Biden is under consideration even as a possibility, the DNC has already adopted rules allowing a “committee” to be formed to present a recommendation to the DNC for voting. Of course, all of this would perfunctory since the number of people in the decision making process is relatively small and having informal “testing of the waters” is an easy thing to do. Also, if Nancy and Chuck made their pick known, I think everyone else would immediately fall in line.
