Several states inaugurated new leaders Monday, with Arizona becoming the first state to have an all-female line of succession. Republican Gov. Jane Dee Hull took the oath in Phoenix from Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, and was followed by Secretary of State Betsey Bayless, Atty. Gen. Janet Napolitano, Treasurer Carol Springer and Superintendent of Public Instruction Lisa Graham Keegan. Arizona has no lieutenant governor.
