    Thumbs down I KNEW IT! Hillary Announces Bill as Running Mate!

    Didn't we all know this was going to happen?

    I am sure she is doing it because she is slipping in the polls and thinks her husband can give her campaign a big boost.


    Maybe Obama will pick up Gore...

    Yeah, nice try CNN.

    Unfortunately, VPs don't get selected until after primaries are done, and the party selects the VP, not the candidate

    They're going to have to come up with a more believable prank next time. BTW, the link times out for me, but I think I get the gist of it

    That would be illegal, and no, it's not legitimate.

    But the constitution states that there can be two terms for a president.

    Oh come on, quit being so naive. I knew from the get go it wasn't legitimate. Nobody's dumb enough to think she'd put him in as her VP. Nobody's dumb enough to think she's got a chance either.

    But the constitution states that there can be two terms for a president.
    And he's served those terms, thusly making it illegal for him to serve EITHER as the president or the VP.

    If something should happen to her while in office, he'd be the natural successor, making it his THIRD term in office, and thusly making it illegal.

    Pretty common sense there.

    but did you know this?

    Residency Limitations
    The Constitution also prohibits electors from voting for both a presidential and vice presidential candidate from the same state as themselves. In theory, this might deny a vice presidential candidate with the most electoral votes the absolute majority required to secure election, even if the presidential candidate is elected, and place the vice presidential election in the hands of the Senate. In practice, this is rarely an issue, as parties avoid nominating tickets containing two candidates from the same state. In one notable case, former Wyoming congressman Dick Cheney had moved to Texas to serve as CEO of Halliburton Company, but reclaimed residency at his Wyoming home before accepting the 2000 GOP nomination for vice president, alongside presidential nominee and Texas governor George W. Bush.

    Yea, I'm wondering this as well. The 22nd Amendment seems mute on this specific scenario, but the illegality of this maneuver seems pretty certain to me.

    There is no provision in the 22nd Amendment that I can find that permits any person to serve as President longer than 10 years. Bill's already had his chance.

    In other words, even though theoretically it may not be illegal for Bill to be veep, because he could become President again it can't possibly be legal for him to be a veep. It would be a reverse of the only scenario where someone could legally serve as President for 10 years - be a veep who then becomes President for exactly 2 years and then be re-elected twice. How can you legally do it in reverse if there's no real guarantee of when Hillary could end up out of office for whatever reason?

    (And yes I know the original headline was a joke)
