  12. If a member of congress dies the position is usually temporarily filled by the Governor of the state until a special election can be held to find a full time replacement. Past practice has placed the spouse of the deceased.

  14. The president's personal cash/credit cards are usually kept in their personal bank in their home state. President Carter found it nearly impossible to buy flowers for his wife's on their anniversary. When he called the florist and told then who he was they thought it was a prank and kept hanging up on him.

  15. Secret Service not only protects the president but his family also. Imagine how complicated your life would be if you constantly had to have several armed agents with you at all times.

  21. There's so little participation in presidential elections, who's to say polling is going to be any more accurate than a census?
