Biden becomes President.
That's only after he becomes President (noon, Jan. 20th). It depends on the Senate confirmation of the Electoral College vote today actually (January
8th). If they confirm Joe Biden has won the Vice-Presidency, and then if Obama gets assassinated, Biden will become the acting president on Jan. 20th.
If, for some reason, they don't confirm that Biden has won the electoral college vote, then, actually I'm not sure if Bush would continue or what
