Who would become Vice President of the US if the vice president dies?

There is no succession to the office of Vice President. If the position becomes vacant, as by succession of the VP to the Presidency, or his death or resignation, the 25th Amendment provides that a new Vice President will be nominated by the current President, and confirmed by both houses of Congress.Two Vice Presidents have been chosen under the amendment: Gerald Ford in 1973 and Nelson Rockefeller in 1974.(If some tragic event would kill both the President and Vice President, then the Speaker of the House would become president.)

How can the speaker of the house become president?

The House Speaker is third in line for president, just behind the vice-president. If some catastrophic event wiped out the both President and Vice-President in a very short period of time, the Speaker would be sworn in as President. Of course the Speaker of House could later be elected President as was James K. Polk.

What are the constitutional requirements for becoming Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court?

There are none. Unlike the US President and members of Congress, who are faced with both age and citizenship requirements, the Constitution is silent about requirements for US Supreme Court justices, including Chief Justice of the United States. The President may select anyone he (or she) believes would be a good candidate for the job, but the nominee would also have to meet with Senate approval. So, while there are no constitutional requirements, there are some unwritten, practical considerations governing who would be selected.For a more information about practical considerations and qualifications, see Related Questions, below.

Yes it does. John F. Kennedy, like other presidents, was an American citizen, so it was perfectly logical that he could become and did become president.

In Article II, Section 1, the Constitution defines the formal requirements for the office of President. There are no classes or schooling required to assume the office of President, providing a person meets all the constitutional requirements.

Can the vice president after serving 8 yrs with the president run with a new presidential candidate ie hillarybiden ticket?

yes, that would be legal The office of the U.S. Vice President has no bearing on the term limits of the President that were established in 1952 with the ratification of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. If someone were to serve five full terms as Vice President, for example, he/she would still be eligible to be elected President twice. The only way that the term limits affect the Vice Presidency is that the Constitution requires that in order to run for Vice President, one must be eligible to be President. Therefore, someone who has been elected President twice could not run for Vice President. (There are some who believe that the presidential eligibility requirements for the vice presidency are only the age, citizenship and residency requirements and that having been elected President twice does not prohibit someone from running for Vice President. The opportunity to settle the debate in the courts has never come up.)
