    I really wish Clemente would know the truth about the President's affair, so that Stanford would be vindicated and the evil Pres would be impeached - but then Clemente is pretty scary herself.
    ok, i remember when a dude was up on the stand talking about China (sounding real conspiratorial) but i thought that was there to add some comedy to the show

    moving on...

    i do also remember that Clemente was selected to move into the VP spot because the current VP had died in the blackout

    then there was the FF glimpse of Potus being awakened where 'something had happened' (he's alive obviously at that point) ,

    so at what point does Clemente become Potus

    my understanding is that everyone's FF is at the same exact moment in time. So how did Clemente become Pres unless the current Potus died shortly after being awoke

    Or resigned or was removed from office.
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!

    See, here's how lost I am on that episode. I thought the Pres got Clemente to back down from the FBI LA group by appointing her the new VP, because of the attempted bribery by the head FBI LA guy (pic of the affair). So then, why would he call in anyone to assassinate them?

    Just wanted to check and see if you are sure about this (have some inside information, etc.) or if this is just your speculation? It is good speculation - don't get me wrong on that - but I just want to make sure I am keeping my facts and specs. separate!

    After Sanford left, when the Pres. made the call, I just assumed it was to whoever he needed to call to make it happen that Mark's team would be leading Mosaic. I honestly never even thought it was him who ordered the hit until I came here and saw your posts. So, while it would be an interesting twist, I just want to clarify whether we know this for sure?

It could also have been a call for a hit against the mosaic team because they contradict the national security view propagated by the CIA that the Chinese are behind the blackout.

    I think the text about the drinking vision was a part of the national security apparatus attempt to denigrate the Mosaic clues and follow-up by the FBI LA team by causing domestic problems for Mark. He did confess under pressure while being questioned at the Senate Hearing. Also interesting that Senator (?) who chaired the committee was named the new Vice President. That takes her out of the funding picture, but not out of the influence and scheming picture.
    Did he? I don't remember him confessing to drinking in his FF. I just remember him repeatedly saying part of his was blurry - and it wasn't until later in the bar with his boss that he admitted to his boss that he was drunk.

    Maybe as Mike'sGirl mentions, he is not dead, he is impeached?

    Re: Flash Forward, ABC

    Well, I was one of those who assumed the call was about getting the mistress and kid to Puerto Rico.... Maybe it isn't supposed to be clear.

    If Clemente is Pres. in her FF and the current Pres. is being wakened for a world crisis in his (do I have that right?) those seem contradictory.... Or am I mixing up FFs?

    Re: Flash Forward, ABC

    I read too many mystery novels and am way to suspicious.

    I went to ABC to read the episode summary and it did not help at all, but I did find out the name of the mistress:
    "Wedeck visits the home of a woman named Renee Garrigo, who lives with a young boy. We don’t find out who these two are until Wedeck has a meeting in the White House. He produces a photo of the President with Renee. It appears they had an affair and the boy is Segovia’s illegitimate child. Wedeck helped with the cover up.
    Wedeck wants the Prez to call off Clemente before she cuts the funding for his investigation. Otherwise, he’ll go public with the pics. Nothing like a little blackmail between friends, right? Segovia takes the bait and Senator Clemente will no longer be bothering Wedeck. She’ll be too busy filling the no longer vacant office of Vice President of the United States."

    So, it is possible that when the Prez found out Renee has been living close by with her their son all these years, that he placed a call to have someone locate her and ship her off............ But, I am going with evil Prez planning a hit on the one guy who could ruin his career. (The only reason that I call him evil, is because he has played the bad guy in too many shows; so whenever he appears, I distrust his character.)
    But, he could be harmless and was just sending someone off to encourage Renee to leave town.
    So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.

    I took the President's call to be arranging the funding for Mosaic. Clemente was the one who would have cut the funding so he made her VP in so Mosaic would be funded.
