What will happen when a low-level politician becomes the POTUS? Will he be able to rule the country in a time of crisis or not? Kirkman used to be just another minister in the Cabinet - nothing special about him. But when a devastating terrorist attack killed every single high-ranking official in the white house, he automatically became the next President of the US. Obviously, he would've never expected the weight of the whole world to rest on his shoulders; yet, there's no running away from this. The country needs a hero and a patriot to lead it to victory. The terrorists won't stop with just one attack. They are growing meaner with each passing day, and the time to act against them is now.
