That would be extremely unlikely but if that happened then the community would have to vote for another president.

But if you think realistically, When would that happen?

Has any secretary of state become president due to the loss of both the president and vice president?

No. It is quite unlikely that this would ever happen. When the Vice President becomes President, a new Vice President is selected and becomes next in line. Only if the new President were to die before a new Vice President was selected would the Speaker of the House become President. Then a new Vice President and a new Speaker would be selected and they would both be ahead of the President Pro Tempore in the order of ascendence. The Secretary of State would become President only if the President, Vice President, Speaker, and President Pro Tempore all died at essentially the same time.


If your president and vice president resigned would would be your next president?

Next in line is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. However, in actual practice if some scandal made both president and Veep want to resign, the Veep would resign first and a new veep would be appointed. Then the president would quit and the new Veep would become president. The only likely way the House Speaker would become president would be for the President and vice-president to both die suddenly at the same time or nearly the same time.
