Quotes

Alexander Haig: Constitutionally, gentlemen, you have the President, the Vice President and the Secretary of State in that order, and should the President decide he wants to transfer the helm to the Vice President, he will do so. He has not done that. As of now, I am in control here, in the White House, pending return of the Vice President and in close touch with him. If something came up, I would check with him, of course.

Haig had just lost a battle about who controlled the crisis room.
30 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now, I don't want to beat up on Al, but one fun fact was that Haig had just lost an administration internal feud on the management of crisis management room. Reagan decided that the VP should be in charge, when the President was away, or when there was nothing that required immediate presidential notice. (Remember, George Bush had been the Director of the C.I.A. AND he could stand above the cabinet officers like State and Defense when a decision had to be made.) Well, Bush was out of the country on a government trip. Now, there was some brief fear that the former 4 star general didn't like being looked over. Well, as one commentator said a few days later: Thank goodness Secretary Haig was nervous when he went in to the White House briefing room and stated "I'm in charge."
