Who would be President ?

If the President, Vice President, all 100 senators, all 435 representatives, and all 14 cabinet members died on the same day (most likely from a multi-pronged attack), who would become president?

In this highly unlikely scenario, the first thing that would happen would be that the governors of all the states would nominate 2 Senators each and they would get confirmed by their respective general assemblies. After this, those Senators would find and vote on a new President and Vice President. The new President would nominate a new cabinet and the Senate would confirm them. Depending on when the attack took place would determine whether the states would elect or appoint Representatives.

Aside from some political showboating, I figure this whole process could be complete in about 3 months. At the end of the 3 months, the people responsible will likely spend the rest of their short lives running only to die tired when the full force of the military lands upon their heads.
