Best Answer

VP

The vice president.

Answer

The succession of the President of the United States is defined by the 25th Amendment and the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 (and subsequent modifications)

In short, it provides that the president be succeed in the following order:

  1. Vice President
  2. Speaker of the House of Representatives
  3. President Pro Tempore of the Senate
  4. Members of the cabinet, by seniority of the cabinet seat (that is, according to which cabinet department was created first). Currently, this starts with the Secretary of State.

However, the Presidential Succession Act itself is probably unconstitutional, based on the inclusion of #2 and #3 in the succession, as the Constitution requires that the President be an "Officer" of the state, which excludes those elected representatives.

Is it proper protocol for the media to call President Obama Mr. Obama and not President Obama?

Using the title of President instead of Mr. is a sign of respect for the office of the Presidency of the United States and should be used when addressing or speaking of the President. At times, however, it would be appropriate to call him "Mr. President". All citizens should honor the office of President and give due respect. You do not have to agree with someone to show them the respect of their position. If someone is the President of the United States and especially if you are a citizen of the United States, then it follows that you should show respect and address him as President, for example: President Obama - not Mr. Obama.
