How far does the presidents succession line go? (USA)?
So in theory, the Secretary of Defense can be our president (Janet Napolitano) after what would surely be a series of extremely unfortunate deaths.
But...what happens after that? What happens if the Secretary of Defense were to die? Do we go down the line from senators or congressmen? After that? Governors? Mayors?
Just curious if there is a 'plan' written out for the succession line to the presidency that goes further then that.
