Lee is still Acting-President?

This part confused me. I thought Lee's presidency was terminated when Laura returned to the fleet. She's referred to as "Madame President" repeatedly. Yet when she had her meltdown this week and Lee addressed the Quorum at Bill's behest, it's implied that he's Acting-President again. Plus he seems to have free reign of Colonial One. Rightfully Zarek is the Acting-President (and what else is new) so what gives?

^That looks to be explored more in this upcoming episode. But Lee does tell Dee in his recap of his Quorum speech that he told them, "As former Acting-President, as former Commander of Pegasus..."

I'd say Lee is effectively President-(Not-)Elect. Roslin's a dead woman walking.

He's also the delegate from the Caprican survivors, so he has standing to address the Quorum in that capacity as well.

Well, he got appointed in the first place because Zarek willingly stepped aside to get Bill to pay some fucking attention.

Now that Laura's officially President again, Lee's sorta the mouthpiece on the Quorum because as former Acting-President he holds some sway. That's how I took it anyway.

And, if you take youwillknowthetruth.com with more than a grain of salt, Lee may not be heir-apparent.
