Just hoping this becomes relevant soon...

The line of succession for the presidency:
  1. Vice President (Richard B. Cheney)
  2. Speaker of the House of Representatives (J. Dennis Hastert)
  3. President pro tempore of the Senate (Ted Stevens)
  4. Secretary of State (Condoleezza Rice)
  5. Secretary of the Treasury (John W. Snow)
  6. Secretary of Defense (Donald H. Rumsfeld)
  7. Attorney General (Alberto Gonzales)
  8. Secretary of the Interior (Gale Norton)
  9. Secretary of Agriculture (Mike Johanns)
  10. Secretary of Commerce (Carlos Gutierrez, ineligible)
  11. Secretary of Labor (Elaine Chao, ineligible)
  12. Secretary of Health and Human Services (Michael Leavitt)
  13. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (Alphonso Jackson)
  14. Secretary of Transportation (Norman Y. Mineta)
  15. Secretary of Energy (Samuel W. Bodman)
  16. Secretary of Education (Margaret Spellings)
  17. Secretary of Veterans Affairs (Jim Nicholson)
I post that because of this from the Huffington Post:
The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg are working on stories that point to Vice President Dick Cheney as the target of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the leaking of CIA operative Valerie Plame's name.
Jim Nicholson for pResident!! Indict the rest!!

Pretty scary how many of them are directly involved in promoting and/or protecting torture: Stevens, Rumsfeld and Gonzales for sure. (Stevens was one of the torture nine.)
