A useful list for stories set in the Protect and Survive universe:
Presidential line of sucession of the 1st Reagan Cabinet (around the late half of 1983 and early 1984):
[Office ]: [Name ]([Term]);
President pro tempore of the Senate : James Strom Thurmond (1981–1987);
Secretary of Treasury : Donald Regan (1981–1985);
Secretary of Transportation : Elizabeth Hanford Dole (1983–1987);
I am not sure if it would matter anyhow, but these would be interesting. The precedent of a woman as president under those circumstances?
STROM THURMOND???? That is the stuff for legends...and, besides, a name as if taken out off "Dr Strangelove".
And I think it would simply be fun to go from Ronald Reagan to Donald Regan.
