If no candidate has a majority of the electoral votes who elects the president?

If no candidate receives the majority of the electoral college votes then the House Of Representatives elects the president from among the three with the highest number of votes. They must vote by special procedure in which each state gets one vote. States with more than one congressman would have to caucus to determine their one vote.

(If no vice-presidential candidate has a majority , the Senate chooses the new VP from among the top two.)

Is it a good idea for two people to marry if they are madly in love but have terminal illnesses and less than two years each to live?

You can't put a time frame on when you are going to die. Don't do it! Many doctors give "time frames" and people prove them wrong all the time. It is great when two people love each other and no matter what the circumstances between them, go for it! Even if you have 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years or 5 years you have been so lucky to truly be passionately in love with each other, when so many other people never get this chance in their lifetime. People can be together for years and miss so much of life's joys and can't see beyond their own problems, while people in your position see life everywhere and embrace it. Live and love like you are going to live forever. Have fun! Make each other laugh and tell secret little stories to each other. Enjoy every part of life you are capable of. Surround yourself with your friends and family. Never listen to those that feel it's wrong, because you both deserve to be together. I am sure you are well aware that no two people will die on the same day or at the same time. One may go in a year or two while the other is left behind. Be prepared for that. Remember, if it's a great love there are no boundaries, and love reaches beyond life as we know it. It goes on forever! Yes! The first part is a wonderful reason to get married, and with the time frame there is less of a chance that it won't work out! I'd rather spend an hour with someone I was truly madly in love with (and vice versa) then to spend a month with someone I "kind of" liked. Don't believe "set times" for terminal illnness. Regarding marriage, it sounds like someone is trying to talk you out of it and you're looking for some reassurance here. I say, "

Donald Trump

Could Donald Trump actually unite the Republican Party or will his actions only result in the Party being divided even more than it already is right now?

As the other Answerers have said, this is a question about crystal-ball-gazing; we can never know the future with any certainty. However, I feel that Donald Trump has the capacity to split the Republican Party and divide the so-called "broad-tent" of the Party.

Historically, the Republican Party has rested on three major pillars: Social Conservatism (supporting traditional families, opposing abortion, etc.), Foreign Policy Conservatism (supporting an expanded US presence abroad, war-hawkishness, etc.), and Fiscal Conservatism (limiting government programs and spending). Within the tent, there were typically groups that represented two of the pillars, but not all three. Regardless, they were able to overcome the difference on the one issue in order to support the other three.

However, the Republican Party also increasingly attracted nativists who saw the direction the country was going in and were scared of these changes. These nativists had no allegiance to the three major pillars of the Republican Party and were just begrudgingly accepted for their vote-count against the increasingly numerous Democrats. The Republican Elites established a relationship with the nativists where they would continue to make empty promises about how they were going to change the country, not do those things (because it would violate the three major pillars), and then expect the votes in the fall. Now, with Donald Trump, the nativists have flipped the script and it is unlikely that the "old-school" Republicans who are much more ideologically motivated, will be willing to be subject to policies with which they disagree.

How many delegates are alloted to each state for the Democratic Convention Convention in 2008?

According to the Democratic National Convention website for 2008 the numbers are not set in stone because superdelegates are assigned to the state in which they legally reside as of the date of the convention and this can change over time. However, you can look at their website under "FAQ"s and find an interactive map that tells you the current count for each state.

Fire Prevention and Protection

Does a 1 hour fire resistant door really only last 20 minutes before it burns up in fire?

No. A fire resistance rating is determined by the amount of time a partition will prevent the spread of fire, so a one-hour door (and its wall and supports) would have to hold back a typical fire growing for at least one hour. For example, a 20-minute fire rating requires a fire door to withstand an intense fire on one side, rising to over 1,400 degrees F during twenty minutes, and then being hit by a pressurized fire stream, without causing any openings.

Is the president elected if he wins a majority of the electoral votes?

After each political party selects its candidate for president (usually in the summer preceding the presidential election), a general election is held on the first Tuesday of November every four years to select the President of the United States. The next presidential election will be November 4, 2008. In order to understand how a president is elected you need to know about the Electoral College. The electoral college is the group of electors from every state and the District of Columbia that convenes to actually select the president. Each state has as many electors as it does representatives in Congress, so there 100 Senators plus 435 Congressmen plus 3 from the District of Columbia. All totalling 538 electors. These electors meet in their respective state capitols in December to cast their ballots for president. In order for a candidate to be elected president, the candidate must get a majority of these electoral votes, or at least 270. (So actually a presidential candidate can actually win the majority of votes in the entire U.S. but not be elected president, such was the case in 1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000) Each state & D.C. has a set of electors for each presidential candidate. The state will submit the electors for the candidate who receives the majority of votes in that state. The votes of the electors, certified by the states, are sent to Congress, where the president of the Senate opens the certificates and has them counted in the presence of both houses of Congress on January 6. The new president is inaugurated at noon on January 20. So as you can see, voters actually cast their votes for the presidential electors, not for the President directly.

What causes an ignition shaft to break seven times in less than two years?

If yours is one of the many engines that use the distributor drive shaft to also run the oil pump, it might just be an oil pump problem. Has the oil pump been replaced? Is it an oversize/high pressure oil pump? Has the oil pressure relief valve been modified? Also, check the distributor for excessive end-play. If the shaft rides up or for any other reason causes excessive torque on the shaft, that too could be causing the shaft to fail. Those shafts are deliberately small so that THEY will break and not damage your camshaft gear. Either way, it's either a binding or sloppy distributor or something that is causing the oil pump to work too hard.

Who is going to be the next US president?

That is not something anyone knows right now. We will not know until November 2012, and even then Obama may be elected for a second term which would mean we won't know who the next president is until November 2016. Right now, we don't even know who the republican candidate will be in 2012. A likely guess is that it will be Mitt Romney, but I, nor anyone else, knows for certain.
