I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just switching from a tags to buttons seems to put it in order
<div class="btn-group-vertical">
			<button href="#" class="btn btn-default">Resume</button>
			<button href="#" class="btn btn-default">Past Projects</button>
			<button href="#" class="btn btn-default">Video</button>
			<button href="#" class="btn btn-default">Button</abutton
			<div class="btn-group">
              
              
				<div class="btn-group">
					 <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-expanded="false">
      Download
      <span class="caret"></span>
    </button>
					<ul class="dropdown-menu" role="menu">
						<li><a href="#">Resume.docx</a></li>
						<li><a href="#">Resume.pdf</a></li>
					</ul>
				</div>

Adjusted HTML markup without changing it to <button>, as it removes all styles applied to <a>.
Removed some css rules to avoid overriding default rules.

Play around and check if it looks fine as to me.

If you use Scott's code, note that on line 5 there is a broken element. (</abutton)
