      I agree with your main point, but you are a bit off on the succession.

      After the VP, the order of succession is:

      Speaker (Mr. Orange.  Yeesh.  Let's hope it never gets to that)
      President Pro Tem of the Senate (I had to look this up, and surprise surprise, right now it's Daniel Inouye!!)
      Cabinet members in the order of the creation of their cabinet, which is where Hillary comes in.

      Small correction, but I am a bit OCD.
