If one or both cannot serve because they are temporarilyincapacitated, the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution prescribes who will become the Acting President. If the president and vice president are permanently removed because of death, resignation, etc., then the Speaker of the House of Representatives becomes the President of the United States as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States and the Presidential Succession Act of 1947.

The Speaker of The House would then be in charge. If this happened today it would be Nancy Pelosi.

The Speaker of the House is third in line to the presidency. Now, in 2011, it is John Boener of Ohio. (Boener is pronounced as Bayner).
