19. The 25th Amendment does not specify a time delay or a process that could promote one
And as such the Speaker of the House was actually the President at that moment in time. Haig was not only incorrect, but a total idiot at the time. You are not correct to infer that practically no one understands the 25th Amendment - I find its stipulations quite clear and I am no mental giant. But even if you were right it would not excuse Haig for having been so ignorant of the stipulations of the Constitution and of the Presidential Succession Act of 1947. I can forgive the folks down at the local bar if they do not have an immediate grasp of these distinctions but none of them has so far accepted a position as Secretary of State.

By his behavior Haig showed that he is a total jackass, just like his hero Saint Ronnie of Reagan and all the rest of his cronies and their followers.
