    He would be able to serve two terms if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office during the second half of the current term.

    For example, if Barack Obama left office between January 2011 and November 2012, Joe Biden would be able to run in 2012 and 2016.

    Yes, a vice president can serve as president for no more than two years and then be elected himself to two terms. It is in the 22nd amendment.

    Yes. He would have to run for election after he completed the last two years of the former President's term. If he won he could run for reelection in four more years.
