Thread Name: Your {Presidential Succession List!!!
Subject: Your {Presidential Succession List!!!
In order to make everyon in America more secure, they are discussing changing the succession list. The current list is: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Camilla, Sir Elton John -- sorry, wrong list.

The current order of succession lists President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Senate President Pro Tempore Ted Stevens, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Secretary of the Treasury John Snow, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Ashcroft and Norton.Then, Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman, Secretary of Commerce Donald Evans, Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, Secretary of Health and Human Services (news - web sites) Tommy Thompson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Mel Martinez, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham, Secretary of Education Rod Paige, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Anthony Principi and Tom Ridge (working his way up this list!!!)

OK. What is your preferred list, based of course on dignity, worthiness, and ability to handle an emergency? My draft list:

1. President George W. Bush (deceased or incapacitated, well, more incapacitated -- that is the whole point)
2. Julia Roberts.
3. Natalie Maines
4. Willie Nelson
5. Bob Barker
6. Harvey Korman (Tim Conway, tied)
7. Wonder Woman
8. Tony Bennett
9. Jack Nicholson
10. Chelsea Clinton

Over to you!!! yours, Peter T.
