SOTU Savior

Why was the name Ernest Moniz so important during last night's State of the Union address?

Because if something drastic were to happen, he'd be our President today.

Dr. Ernest Moniz, secretary of energy.

Moniz, the current Secretary of Energy, is 15th on the depth chart in the chain of succession for who would become president should something happen to the first fourteen.

It's not announced until shortly before the SOTU who the "designated survivor" would be, but this year, it's Moniz.

Kind of morbid, if you think about it.  But he does have great hair.
