The speaker of the house takes over(:
the vice president takes over
the reason why is because when the president dies, becomes ill, or is impeached the vice president takes over.
If the president dies or resigns, the vice president takes over his job for the remaining years/job.
If the President dies or if he resigns. Also If he is impeached.
If he dies in office, then Dick Cheney becomes President.
The vice president becomes the new President if the President vacates his office for any reason, including death, resignation, or forced removal via the impeachment process. Note that the President would remain president after impeachment until and unless the Senate votes to convict. Being impeached is roughly equivalent to when a criminal is indicted or charged with a crime. After that a trial is held and unless they are convicted, nothing happens. Both Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clinton were impeached. Neither was convicted by the Senate so they each remained president. If the Vice President is impeached as well, the Speaker of the House becomes President.
The President pro tempore of the Senate becomes the President. He/she is the leader of the Senate when the vice president can not attend. If him/her dies also then the Secretary of State becomes President.
