Presidential Order of Succession

Vice President Cheney spent the night in the hospital. Apparently he just had a bad reaction to the meds he's taking for his sore foot. But it got me to trying to remember my high school civics. If Cheney were gone, who would become president if Bush were impeached?

Turns out Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is next, then, and this is really scary, Senate president pro-tempore Ted Stevens is after that!
