who can be vice prez? Amendments 12&22 Clinton Bill & Obama

Just read 12th &22nd We could make some excellent tickets!! Hillary and Obama or Bernie and Bill? The prez & VP can't reside in the same state. That's why Chaney had to go back to Wyoming and pretend. Maybe we can build a dynastic dynamo of Democrats.

1. A technical reading of the 22th amendment is that they can be VP

But I'd rather no more Clintons, please. I wonder how a Sanders / Obama ticket would do, haha.

3. Not a chance in hell. VP would have to resign in the event of succession.

Giving the Presidency to the Speaker of the House. The House is likely to stay in the hands of Republicans due to gerrymandering, so the very idea is pretty silly on its face, though it'd make history, it'd be a bad political move.

4. A vice president must be eligible to become President.

 

Therefore, any former President cannot possibly be a Vice President.

Why even ask?

And it's Cheney, NOT Chaney. Spelling really does matter.

6. They are eligible!! read the 22nd & 12th Amendments

That is the point. 22 just says elected pres. VP is a different office. It does not say that a 2 term pres. can't serve as pres. Only that he can't be elected. Yes, spelling does count, but not for war criminals. I just can"t learn the 3rd N. Korean monster, Him ill sick?
I am thinking of a Lessing/Obama ticket.
