My ONE political post for the week!
The eleven-year-old in question: my daughter Brittany. She explained the White House hierarchy this way:
If the President of the United States dies, then the Vice President takes over.
If the Vice President dies, then the Oval Office goes to the Speaker of the House (as long as that speaker isn't Pelosi, I'm good with that)
If the Speaker of the House dies, then you go to Radio Shack and buy a new one.
