If, hypothetically, the Good Lord summoned both Bush and Cheney to answer for their many crimes (and I believe HE would then tell GWB where he can stick that Presidential pardon)...here's the order of succession:
* The Vice President Dick Cheney
* Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
* President pro tempore of the Senate1 Robert Byrd
* Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
* Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson
* Secretary of Defense Robert Gates
* Attorney General Alberto Gonzales
* Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne
* Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns
* Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez2
* Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao3
* Secretary of Health and Human Services Mike Leavitt
* Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Alphonso Jackson
* Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters
* Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman
* Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings
* Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson
* Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff
For those not thrilled with the idea that Nancy P. would be first out of the gate...just consider that a few years ago, the 90 yr old Sen. Thurmond was 3rd in line....
President Pelosi...has a nice alliterative ring to it.....
If she drew the support of young men in this country...would they be known as Nancy's boys???
