Under the original constitution, what was the original outline for presidential succession? How did the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 change that?
Answer by JOE
In the beginning the Vice President would move up to President and if he was not able the congress would then act on Advise and consent to name who would be next in line and as you say in 1947 the line of succession was clearly defined.
