Forget who's now in any of those jobs: It seems to me that if there is need to reach down beyond fourth place, there would have been some sort of real disaster to hit the country.

That line-up would work better on the wall of the post office, rather than in a presidential line of succession.
Move Senate President (Ted "F*** ANWR, I want Money" Stevens) down a few and raise Secretary of Defense, Homeland Security, and Attourney general.
