I've heard about there being a a two-term US Presidential limit since after FDR left there was law put into place to enforce this. I also know that in the event that the elected US President passes away, the Vice President assumes that Presidential role.
This got me thinking some and I am curious to know that if a president dies just hours after “official” inauguration, such as a assassination for example, and the Vice President somehow survives, then this would mean the VP becomes president the same exact day the new president was inaugurated, correct?
Does this mean the VP continues on as President until the end of the 4 year term ends? And does this mean that he could then legally run and be reelected for two additional terms?
