Still Senator Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of State, has written legislation to make that office first in line for succession to the Presidency in the event of the President's death.
Currently, the constitution says that the line of succession goes first to the Vice President, then Speaker of the House, and Senate Majority Leader. The former first lady feels, however, that the person sitting in her position is more qualified to lead the country if the president were not able or not there.
"After all," said Hillary, "this is the person who is our nation's foreign policy expert and is our true representative to the world. They are uniquely qualified to lead."
When told that Obama might change his mind and move her to Treasury Secretary instead, Mrs. Clinton was quick to point out that "the person who controls our nations money is vital and should, instead, be next in line."
