Politics quiz

The other day at work I got into a discussion of American government with a couple of my employees, and when the conversation turned to the Senate I discovered that neither one of them -- one of whom is a government major -- could name the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Just then, a customer came up to the register, and I told her that I'd give her ten percent off her purchase if she could name the current President Pro Tempore. She couldn't do it. (In fact, she gave every indication of never having heard the term before.) So the question is, could you have earned that ten percent discount? No cheating!

Poll #1074727 Who's the President Pro Tempore of the the Senate?

The current President Pro Tempore of the Senate is:

For an additional ten percent off, who was the previous President Pro Tempore?
