The 25th amendment (1967) to the Constitution shows the Constitution's flexibility. When the Constitution was first drafted, it did not have any provisions for presidential disability or vacancy in the office of vice president. This amendment established a process whereby if the president becomes disabled, the vice president assumes the responsibilities of that office until the president can resume his duties.
