What does the last line of the article mean? It reads:

Much political speculation has surrounded Manchin's possible response should Robert C. Byrd die in office, but Manchin has consistantly refused comment on the subject.
As Governor, Manchin would have the power to appoint a sentator to replace Byrd, should Byrd die in office. This applies to all senators, but I assume Byrd's age is why this comment was added. TOO 21:59, Jan 13, 2005 (UTC)

Secretary of State?[edit]

There is no info on his time as Secretary, we need to add to this section. Grammarxxx (talk) July 20, 2012. 21:08 (UTC)

Done.[edit]

I can now add this article along with all the others to the list of things I will no longer attempt to assist. Wikipedia in its current form is basically "edit if you want, and then hope and pray that whatever you post won't get deleted because 1 user decides it's not good enough for 'encyclopedic value'". If I went to the Donald Trump article or any other page that's being monitored by an excess of users, and randomly deleted over 4,000 bytes of material because I anointed myself the Overseer of What is Significant, I'd probably get banned. But when someone else does it then they're just monitoring the "good faith mistakes" imposed by myself and others they wish to delete the contributions of. Because I know how this website works, if I restore my edits, they'll get deleted again and I'll get accused of edit warring. If I delete all of my contributions from the site, then I'll be charged with vandalism so there's basically no vehicle to address any of this besides writing on the talk page and being antagonized for trying to add material. Therefore I'll try very hard to no longer be inclined to edit Wikipedia at all as I realize that it is just a glorified nanoscopic club of editors who treat anyone else as intellectually inferior. All hail @Display name 99:, decider of all things worthy of inclusion on Joe Manchin's Wikipissea article! Informant16 (talk) 27 October 2019
