You know what would really tick OFF the Democrats.

If Bush should resign now.

Then Dick Cheney becomes President(that would really tick OFF the libs)!!!

Then he appoints Condoleeza Rice as VP.

Then Cheney resigns two weeks later and Condoleeza Rice, A Republican, becomes the first BLACK - WOMAN President.

I am not sure this is correct but it would be nice to see the Dems go nuts.

Well that is the order of succession to the Presidency, but once the VP becomes President, he can nominate a new VP who does not have to be the Speaker; recall Nixon's nomination of Ford (who was not the Speaker) after Agnew resigned. The real kink in this scenario, however, is that the Senate would have to confirm the nomination of the new VP.
