The Presidential Succession is important to have in place in case something happens to our president.

The "VP"

The vise president is the runner up to be the next president if need be. They don't have many other responsibilities than that besides being the president of the senate.

Prominence of The VP Overtime

When FDR was promoted to president the importance of the VP changed. They are now always prepared to take charge. They are also involved in some of the 'president stuff' if the president allows them to do.
