  • Discussing the problem brought up at 8:15. If the secretary had to resign their previous post to become acting president, that means they are no longer in that post and therefore appointing someone to a post higher than that post would not kick them out of office, I would even think they would be able to fill their previous post with someone else.

  • Question for you: How does a place go about joining the United States? Like, is it possible for a non-United States place like, say, Spain, to formaly request to be part of the United States? And if they can, do they join as what? Is it like a Puerto Rico situation, or they can join as full fledge state number 51?

  • I think the "bumping" clause refers to people who didn't die when the president did, but rather weren't able to serve as president when first called for some reason, such as being in a coma. If that were the case, new appointees would *not* usurp the presidency.

  • 4:16 Interesting fact: it was Wilson's wife who told everyone this and until Woodrow went on publicity tours drumming up support for the League of Nations, hardly anybody knew if he was actually capable of performing the duties of president or indeed _still alive._ His advisors would tell Edith what was going down and she would decide what he needed to be kept abreast of and what could be delegated. Because of this, some historians argue that America's first female president was Edith Wilson.

  • The 28th amendment should be Section 1 "if anyone below the Secretary of State in the order of succession becomes acting president, he or she can appoint new acting Secretaries and a new acting Vice President while still remaining the Acting President. He/she also remains acting president when congress elects a new President Pro Tempore or Speaker of the House. After the original president's original term is up he/she gives up the powers and duties of the president to the new duly elected official and they take their original secretarial job back from the acting secretary." Section 2 "Congress will after 1 week of the acting president appointing an acting Vice and an acting secretary or secretaries vote on them. They become the acting official if a majority of both houses agree on it. Congress can pass laws regarding hearings. Hearings can be made before the 1 week period." Section 3 "The order of succession will be revised to put the Secretary of the Homeland Security below the Attorney General."

  • This reminds me of an end of the world movie. I think it was a zombie movie. But basically this chain of command is brought up, and guess what? Nearly every chain of command (president, vice president, the speaker, etc) have been taken by the virus. So a secretary (I think education or something) became the new president. If you have seen that movie, you can sense the despair in the air. The fact that the ladder ACTUALLY climbed all the way down to make that person president really brought concern to the people on Air Force One who survived. And it wasn't like they could go through any ceremony or an official swear-in. I think it was more like "hey, you survived. Congrats, you are the president despite the fact you were never prepared for this job, nor did you even want the job at all. But because everyone before you is dead, and probably those lower than you are dead too, now you are the president. But we're not gonna have any of those swear-in ceremony, so just take the office and the duties and uhhh...try not to die too. We think you are the last one." Edit: If you are familiar with this movie, please let me know.
