Just In
for More Sense than That

Say, maybe Fudge didn't like Umbridge as much as people thought he did; and perhaps he thought her little stunt with the Dementors was bad form, or something like that.

Fudge may be intelligent enough to want to get rid of her.

This is a very Machiavellian Dulmbledore.

That makes sense - though I think most of us just assumed that she and Fudge wanted DADA, in order to stop Dumbledore raising a competent army against them. And we airbrushed away the possibility that she or Fudge had enough logic to have noticed the jinx because, well, magic-users, right? We've known since first year that logic and magic don't often go together.

While Fudge rarely demonstrates any signs of intelligence, I think he does have some small degree of cunning... and as it is, Defense serves as a way of disposing of any... unwanted professors, while History would be far too stable.

At what point in the books did Fudge demonstrate any intelligence?

Brilliant. It could very well have gone just that way - makes more sense than any other theory. A fun read.
