I think the issue is that Peter Pettigrew is one bad seed. It seems like Slytherin is chock-full of 'em.

Good points. And, to me, it fits with Umbridge's character that she wouldn't be in a house that displays her true colors. She always seemed to be cunning to the point of not letting anyone in on her main goals: after all, she worked her way up the ladder in Fudge's Ministry while harboring a Muggle-born Registration Commission mindset the whole time. So while she definitely values and embodies many of the same traits as Slytherin, I expected her to choose/value a house that would throw folks off the scent. Perhaps she was too young at the time of Sorting, though, to closely hold that sort of deceptiveness.
