There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

This.  We already had a never-married President (1857-61).

Well, he's referring to the immediate future (although, yes, scenario 2 actually occurred in the 19th century). I would say scenario 2 is still likelier.

scenario 2 will probably not happen until scenario 1 is possible.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Who are some prominent currently living American politicians over 40 who are in the second category?

Off the top of my head, I can think of:

Lindsey Graham
Herb Kohl
Janet Napolitano
Condoleezza Rice

Any others?  I'm sure there must be quite a few.

I imagine hyphenation, for both spouses, as a sort of custom would very quickly make us all sound like a bunch of bizarrely named English aristocrats. If Peter Flynn marries Beatrice Mendez and has a kid named Anthony, who in turn marries Alice Glazowski-Chanut, their kid would be named Colin Mendez-Flynn-Glazowski-Chanut, who would then marry Beth Harper-Zhang-Rothman-Wald, and their kid would be named...

Today? The latter scenario is more likely. But it likely will not be by the end of this decade.

Option 1.  Those in Option 2 will lose too many votes from those who suspect they are secretly gay.  Some votes will be lost for being gay, other votes will be lost for not having the courage to come out.

Feingold is twice divorced.  We're only talking about people who've never been married.
