Good quiz, but I think you should specify House Majority Leader and House Minority Leader. I should have known because you said the party of each, but I still spent several seconds thinking I'd forgotten how to spell McConnell and Reid.

Great quiz. But maybe you could change the wording of "What does the GOP stand for?". I was thinking ideologies like conservatism and that's obviously not what you were looking for.

If you're still wanting some questions you could add, I don't think it would be too much to ask to know secretaries: Clinton - State, Geithner - Treasury, Panetta - Defense.
