POTUS POTENTIAL: Waiting in the West Wing

With so much attention being focused on the Democratic Party debates and campaigns for the past six months, many people overlooked the obvious. Someone not even running for office has a better chance of becoming POTUS 46 than any of the candidates who spent millions of dollars on failed campaigns.

As any president knows, his vice-president is only a heartbeat away from the presidency, so the pick must be well-considered. Over the course of U.S. history nine vice-presidents ascended to the presidency due to the death or resignation of their boss.

Four presidents died in office from illness or disease, four died in office from assassination, and one resigned. This represents nearly 20 percent, or one out of four. This group includes the shortest serving president and the longest serving president. Chronologically, it unfolded in this way.

Eight presidents served before the first death of a president while in office.

William Henry Harrison (POTUS 9) who died from typhoid or pneumonia 31 days into his presidency, became the first to die in office, and known for having served the shortest term. His vice-president, John Tyler, became POTUS 10.

Following that, only one president (POTUS 11) served until the next death of a president while in office. A later post reveals interesting details about the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 11, James K. Polk.

Zachary Taylor (POTUS 12) died from stomach illness 16 months into his presidency. His vice-president, Millard Fillmore became POTUS 13.

Two presidents (POTUS 14 and POTUS 15) served until the next death of a president while in office.

Abraham Lincoln (POTUS 16) died from a gunshot wound to the head, resulting in Andrew Johnson becoming POTUS 17.

Two presidents (POTUS 18 and POTUS 19) served until the next death of a president while in office.

James Garfield (POTUS 20) died less than a year into his first term from infection related to a gunshot wound. Chester Arthur became POTUS 21.

Two presidents served until the next death of a president in office: POTUS 22 who also served as POTUS 24, and POTUS 23. Three presidencies, two presidents. A later post reveals interesting details about the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 22/24, Grover Cleveland.

William McKinley (POTUS 25) died from a gunshot wound in his fourth year in office. His first vice-president was Garret Hobart, then he went for several years without a vice-president, until Theodore Roosevelt only six months earlier, who became POTUS 26.

Two presidents (POTUS 27 and POTUS 28) served until the next death of a president while in office.

Warren Harding (POTUS 29) died of a heart attack, and his vice-president Calvin Coolidge became POTUS 30. Note: 2+9=11.

One president (POTUS 31) served until the next death of a president while in office.

Franklin D. Roosevelt (POTUS 32) died from a cerebral hemorrhage within weeks of beginning his fourth term, making him the longest serving president. Harry Truman, who had become Roosevelt’s third vice-president only three months earlier, became POTUS 33. As master number presidents POTUS 11 and POTUS 22 will be reviewed, we will also look at the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 33.

One president (POTUS 34) served until the next death of a president while in office.

John F. Kennedy (POTUS 35) died from a gunshot wound to the head on November 22, 1963 (11/22). His vice-president Lyndon B. Johnson became POTUS 36.

No president served until the next Vice-POTUS to POTUS transfer, the first and only to not involve death by illness or assassination.

Richard Nixon (POTUS 37) resigned from office causing his second vice-president, Gerald Ford, to become POTUS 38 (3+8=11).

Fortunately, the country has not encountered a national tragedy involving the loss of a leader for half a century, likely due to improved Secret Service, surveillance, and security procedures.

On the front-end of the POTUS line, eight presidents served without the death or resignation of a president while in office. Over time, a pattern emerges where we see only one or two presidents between such a transition. We are now in a similarly long period with a count of seven: POTUS 39, POTUS 40, POTUS 41, POTUS 42, POTUS 43, POTUS 44, and POTUS 45.

Recall that POTUS 45 is the oldest person to become president and currently 74 (7+4=11). With a deadly and highly-contagious virus on the loose that seems to favor the elderly, anyone mingling with as many people as a president does on a given day certainly puts himself at greater risk than the average person. Additionally, the level of stress must be physically demanding no matter at what age.

During some of the Democratic presidential debates, political rivals of POTUS 45 declared numerous times and in various ways that “the most dangerous president in modern history” must be removed from office at all costs and re-election avoided by whatever means necessary. While impeachment proceedings aired on national television failed to accomplish that, random citizens who disagree with POTUS 45 seem to casually toss around curses and threats. Being a human punching bag comes with the territory.

Unfortunately, this type of rhetoric causes one to wonder what nefarious actions may be at play that could lead to a mystery illness, accident, or outright assassination, resulting in the vice-president becoming POTUS 46. Or the current POTUS could resign for whatever reason, passing the torch on to his right-hand man.

No matter what the cause of departure, such an event results in turmoil, confusion, and nationwide grieving for the loss of a president and general sadness for the country. With a general feeling of the country already in turmoil and confusion, this is the last thing we need.

If such a transition occurs before the November 2020 election, Pence would be the 10th vice-president to assume the presidency in this way. The 2020 election would then be for POTUS 47 (4+7=11).

I reiterate that I wish no harm or ill will upon anyone. I present this information simply as a reminder of a repetitive, unfortunate fact of U.S. history.

Michael Richard Pence 48th U.S. Vice-President

DATE OF BIRTH: June 7, 1959 = 6+7+1+9+5+9 = 37/10/1
  • 6+7+1+9+5+9 = 37/10/1
  • 6+7+1959 = 1972 = 1+9+7+2 = 19/1
  • 1959 = 1+9+5+9 = 24/6
  • 6+7+24 = 37/10/1
  • 6+7+6 = 19/1
  • BIRTH DATE = 1
  • VOWELS = 35/8 (same for full and reduced)
  • CONSONANTS = 120/3 (full), 66 (reduced)
  • FIRST NAME = 51/6 (full), 33 (reduced)
  • MIDDLE NAME = 61/7 (full), 43/7 (reduced)
  • LAST NAME = 43/7 (full), 25/7 (reduced)
  • FULL NAME (15 letters) = 155/11 (full), 11 (reduced)
  • MOST COMMON NUMBERS = four each of 3, 5, and 9; two 1s and 4s
  • LEAST COMMON OR MISSING NUMBERS = one 7; missing 2 and 6

During the 2016 election, this former governor of Indiana ran his own campaign for president, confirming his aspirations for the top spot. However, he ended up on the Trump/Pence ticket as the Republican party nominees and ultimate victors.

As the 48th U.S. Vice-President has a Birth Date that equals a 1, which is the number of new beginnings and leadership. If POTUS 45 secures a second term and Pence keeps his job, he would be a likely candidate for POTUS 46 in 2024 (4+6=10/1). He would be age 65 (6+5=11) at the time of the 2024 election, and would celebrate his 66th birthday while in office, both master number ages. Although different ages, Vice-President Pence and President Trump have birthdays one week apart.

This numerical fingerprint shows an abundant four 3s (Cs), 5s (E, N), and 9 (I, R). These numbers are found in Consonants (3). The two 1s (A) and 4s (D, M) are also Birth Date (1). With only one 7 (P) some compensation can be found in the Last Name (7), Middle Name (7) and Birth Day (7). With 2s and 6s completely missing, they do appear in the Birth Month (6) and First Name (6). The absence of 2s suggests weakness with cooperation and diplomacy, which seems to contradict demonstrated abilities.

This numerical fingerprint presents several master numbers found in the Full Name (11), reduced total of First Name (33), and Consonants (66). Often referred to as MIKE: M (13) + I (9) + K (11) + E (5) = 38/11. Whether MIKE or MICHAEL, the result is a master number. In doing so another master number is created with the letter K (11).

Should he be thrust unexpectedly into the role of POTUS, this numerical fingerprint identifies minimal weakness and strong POTUS potential.

This is part of a series entitled POTUS CODE: Election-Year Guide to Picking a President by the Numbers


Top Democrats determined to become the party nominee with the primary goal of unseating POTUS 45. Do any among them present a numerical fingerprint worthy of the title POTUS 46?

My reviews of the numerical fingerprints remain nonpartisan, unbiased, without regard to policies or personality.
