  • ""If a vice president dies in office or resigns, the Twenty-fifth Amendment authorizes the president to choose a new vice president, subject to confirmation by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. This situation occurred twice during the Nixon and Ford administrations. In 1973, President Nixon appointed Gerald R. Ford to replace Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, who resigned in the face of criminal BRIBERY charges. When Nixon resigned in August 1974 because of the WATERGATE scandal, Ford became president. Ford then appointed Nelson A. Rockefeller vice president.""

  • Really? Well, this is what the Presidential Succession Act states:

    "If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is neither a President nor Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, upon his resignation as Speaker and as Representative in Congress, act as President."

    Here's a thought, OP, why do YOU provide a link and EDUCATE us, since apparently you know so much more than us--and what a 2 second Google search can produce! LOL :o)

  • God help us if anything happened to Obama. Pelosi is one sneaky snake and I doubt Biden would see it coming.

  • The presidental sucession above (posted by Lorikeet) assumes all people in the line are unable to fullfil the presidency at that time. So if both the president and vp die before a new president takes office, then speaker of the house becomes president.

  • If the president is removed from office, the succession moves in order.
