    Neither the president nor the vice president had been elected to office.

    Under the 25th Amendment "Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress"

    Gerald Ford was chosen by President Richard Nixon to be his Vice President when Spiro Agnew resigned leaving the office of Vice President open. So When President Nixon resigned - Gerald Ford became President and once again the office of the Vice President was empty.

    Gerald Ford appointed Nelson Rockefeller of New York to be the new Vice President.

    Both men were approved by both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

    This is the only appointment that must be approved by the House of Representatives.
