One answer said "If he was VP and finishes up at POTUS". Well that is only one way. What if He/she were Speaker of the House and became POTUS because VP could not serve as President? Then the speaker ran for POTUS for 2 terms afterwards? BTW the only way they can run for 2 terms is they could not serve as President for 24 or more months as POTUS. If they served 23 months and 25 days then yep they can run for 2 more terms. Your welcome.

If a president became president by assuming the presidency (i.e., he was not elected president), and he has not been in office for more than two years, he can be run for two four-year terms as president. So, it is possible for a president to serve ten years. This is according to the 22nd Amendment of the United States Constitution.

If the president were to die after serving 2 years of their term. The vice president would then finish out the last 2 years.

Afterward, the vice president could then run for president, and serve 2 terms of their own.

However, this has never actually happened.

A person who finishes less than half of a sitting president's term, even if it is less than half by one day, can be considered as not having served a presidential term. He or she can then be elected to two full terms of eight years each. This has not yet happened, and there would probably be some considerable debate about it if it ever does.

No, a president can be elected two terms but that's it. The only president who went for 11 years was FDR and he was the only one.

If a president is elected for two terms how many years in office will the president serve?

if a US President is elected for 2 terms he will serve 8 years unless he resigns, dies, or becomes unable to perform his duties. A vice-president (or other official) who succeeds an elected president may serve for up to 2 years without forfeiting eligibility to two elected terms. So a President can serve a maximum of 10 years under the law set forth in the 22nd Amendment.


In what year would the 54 president take office?

It depends upon how many times Presidents 45 through 53 get re-elected. President's serve 4 year terms and can only serve maximum of two terms, thus the maximum any President can serve is 8 years. As of right now President Obama is our 43rd President serving in the 44th presidential peroid. - so between him and the 54th President there will be 10 other Presidents and each will serve either 4 or 8 years. Since 10 Presidents will serve either 4 or 8 years in order to get to President 54 - there will be a minimum of 40 years (10 x 4 years) to a maximum of 80 years (10 x 8 years) before President 54 takes office. Thus, since we are in year 2009, the range would be from 2049 - 2089 when President 54 takes office.
