    Just heard an interesting thing that the speaker of the house (Nasty Pelosi) is 3rd in line for the presidency. Makes me wonder if she is getting delusions of grandeur about attaining the throne by getting rid of Trump and somehow taking out Pence as well.

    You "just heard" that?
    Man, that's Civics 101 "Line of Succession".
    What gets me about that is that the Senate is considered the "upper house", so why is the Speaker of the House 3rd and not the President Pro Tempore of the Senate?
    It used to be that way, and was changed back in the 40's.

    I had to look it up as I remember people joking about Alexander Haig running to the Oval Office stating he was in charge when President Reagan got shot. Anyway it used to be the Senate Pro Tempore, but in 1947 Truman reversed it and it has been speaker of the house ever since.
