I think the multiple herpes sores kind of gives away the Photoshop work.
Interestingly, their is no real reason to think she would become Speaker of the House. The Speaker doesn't have to be a member of Congress. Madison thought that the real leader of the US would be the Speaker - a person acclaimed by Congress to be the wisest among us to lead The People. In our form of government, neither the Senate nor the President were meant to be representatives of The People, that was the role relegated to the House, in fact much of the COTUS is designed as a check on the possible mob rule caused by a House that was too powerful. But since Madison was just a silly dreamer, over the years the Speakership went to political hacks while succeedingly more powerful Presidents postured as the "Representative of The People", which is BS. The only one who came close to Madison's vision was Thaddeaus Stevens, the author of the 13th and 14th Amendments and architect of Reconstruction, who was able to run the entire US government thanks to the massive majorities of radicals in the House and Senate. Myself, I'd love to see Bill Clinton get the job.
Old Thaddeus, my kind of guy. Like Lincoln, he died to soon. Just look at him. Feel the love:
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
