The VP is elected with the President as a total ticket. Should a new VP be required the during the term of office the President can appoint someone to the office.

John Tyler never bothered trying to appoint a Vice President after he became President.


If the Vice President was no longer there due to death, resignation, or becoming President, the acting President can appoint a Vice President. The new VP has to be confirmed by a majority vote o both the US Senate and House of Representatives.


no..the presidential candidate decides whom he will appoint to run as vice president with him


US Constitution, 25th Amendment.Section. 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.


The president would still be the president and he would appoint a new VP. We have had a "replacement" VP in the past. Vice President Agnew was asked to resign and Gerald Ford became VP.


The US president remains president, but would have to nominate a new vice president.


The Senate approves the appointment of a new Vice President of the US.


Yes-- a new VP is selected by the president with the approval of the US Senate.


The current president would appoint a new VP. We have had one or two VP's quit while in office and that is what happened. This is how Ford became VP after Agnew.


In this case, the new President would nominate someone to be vice president. If both houses of Congress confirm the nomination, he or she becomes the vice president.The new president nominates a new vice president. The nominees is sworn in after a majority confirmation vote in the US Senate.The new President will nominate a new Vice President. When approved by the Senate, the nominee becomes the new VP.


Most significantly, it establishes the means to provide a new US Vice President. Section 1 of the amendment states that if the US President is removed by death, impeachment, or resignation, the Vice President will become the new President. Section 2 states whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President may appoint a new vice president, to be confirmed by a majority of both houses of Congress. Section 3 states that whenever the President advises the president pro tempore of the senate and Speaker of the House that he cannot discharge the powers and duties of his office, the vice president may then discharge such powers and duties as acting president (for the period of disability).


The President appoints a new Vice President, who must be approved by Congress.


The President appoints a new Vice President, subject to Congressional approval.


The new President will nominate a new Vice President. After being approved by the US Senate, the nominee becomes the new VP.


Yes, that is possible. Companies have either an owner or a board of directors who appoints positions such as president and vice president; unlike the US federal government, there is no automatic promotion of a vice president to president in the event that the office of the president becomes vacant for whatever reason. When a company has no president, the owner or board of directors has to appoint one, and they do not necessarily have to promote the vice president. And there could be a period of time when the new president has not yet been chosen and there is still a vice president. It would be an unusual situation but certainly not an impossible situation.


If the US president dies, the vice-president becomes president and a new vice-president is appointed.If the 'new' president dies, the 'new' vice-president becomes president.This process is dealt with under the 25th Amendment to the US constitution which starts off....Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President. Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.


Either the president elects a new vice-president or the Speaker of the House of Representatives becomes vice-president


Joe Biden is the Vice President elect for the 2008 election.


No. The Vice-President is President of the US Senate.


As the new Vice President, Joseph Biden will be the President of the U.S. Senate.


Dick Cheney will remain as Vice President of the US until January 20, 2009, when the new president elect and vice president elect are sworn into office.


The President nominates a new Vice President, who is confirmed by the vote of both houses of Congress. (This is specified in the 25th Amendment.)


The vice-president normally becomes president if the current president is assassinated. In the US, if the President is assassinated (or otherwise unable to perform the duties of his office), the Vice President becomes President, and will nominate a new Vice President to be confirmed by the Congress, according to the 25th Amendment (1967).


The President of the US receives that office by vote of the citizens of the United States. He cannot appoint himself to the Office of President, or to any other office.
