The letter to the editor, “Award Oval Office to 2016’s second-place finisher” (The Daily Astorian, Aug. 28), expressed a novel and worthy idea of how to handle situations such as our nation finds itself.

The writer’s notion of succession is more appropriate for a situation in which corruption or foreign intervention, or both, have resulted in the election of a president, or any other political leader. A constitutional amendment is in order.
