David,

Thanks for the info, but now I am confused! Article II, Section I (preceeding the 25th Amendment) of the Constitution specifies:

"In case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office, the same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by law provide for the case of removal, death, resignation or inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what officer shall then act as President, and such officer shall act accordingly, until the disability be removed, or a President shall be elected. "

As I understand the above BOTH President AND Vice President would have to be incapacitated, etc., in order for the Congress to determine who would become President.

Please help clear up my confusion!

Thanks!

Albert Sailhorst
