Did you know that the most powerful position in Congress is Speaker of the House?
If anything were to happen to the President and Vice President at the same time, the Speaker of the House is next in line for the presidency.

It would not surprise me to see AOC announce that she was running for the White House as soon as she reaches the minimum, age of 35.
