Hey, Mike. Good question. I'm not sure. But how about this...can a former President serve as Vice President? Does anyone know the law? I know he can't be elected to serve another term as President, but can be serve as Vice President under the Constitution? I did a little research on this.

The 12th Amendment says "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice President." This probably is in case the President can no longer serve while in office because of illness or death. Makes sense. Later we added the 22nd Amendment after FDR was elected to serve 4 terms. It states that "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice."

Now, if Hillary got elected and Bill was Vice President and he took on the office President of the United States, he would have done so because he was serving as her Vice President, not because he was elected.

An article in the Washington Post last year discussed this and, although there have been debates about such a suggestion manipulating the constitution, several judges, including those who have served under President Bush, agree that the language in the Constitution does not prevent a Clinton-Clinton ticket from being legal. It said "Three former White House lawyers consulted by The Washington Post (two who served President Bush and one who served Clinton) agreed that the amendment would not bar Clinton from the vice presidency. A federal judge, who noted that he has 'no views on the matter,' said the plain language of the amendment would seem to allow Clinton to 'become president through succession.'

Anyway, how can any Republican argue about the interpretation of the Constitution when it has been spit on for the past 7 years?

So my question to you is would this be a good thing? Would you vote for Clinton and Clinton? :-)

A friend told me I'm wrong and that Hillary said on TV that he cannot be VP. But a Yale Law professor was quoted in this 2000 article when Gore was running. Several legal experts say he could be VP. Actually, I don't think he'd want it.

"No person who is Constitutionally ineligible to serve as President shall be eligible to serve as Vice President."
   That's it. Bill Clinton is ineligible to serve as Vice President because he has already served his maximum term.
   Anyway, you're forgetting that Hillary was already president while her husband was busy turning the White House into his personal brothel/ real estate office/ criminal pardon factory. I don't think any of us want another four to eight years of that.
   Give it another six months, and she won't even be on the ticket. Once the Democratic party figures out that she isn't electable (at least not in this election), they'll tell her to step down in favor of a more viable candidate.
   O'Bama has also screwed himself, because he's been too busy running for the presidency to do the job to which he was elected. So far this year, he's missed voting on 80% of the issues due to campaign conflicts. If he can't do his job as a senator, he can't hope to be an effective leader of the Free World; no one would take him seriously, and this is just now becoming obvious to the voting public. Political stars that rise too rapidly have a bad habit of burning out quickly as well. Personally, I believe that if O'Bama had concentrated on his senatorial duties during his initial term, he would have had an excellent chance of being elected in 2012. As it is, his own inexperience becomes more and more glaring the longer he campaigns.
   It's still too early to call this election with any degree of accuracy, but I believe that John Edwards will stay the course and emerge as a front runner as we get closer to election day. He's not my first choice, but I think he has the best chance of surviving the upcoming mudslinging/ scandal season. Most of the field will be weeded out by July, whether by scandals, lack of funds or simply because some of them will eventually realize that they can't win their party's nomination.
   Regardless of who is elected, I'm really NOT looking forward to the upcoming FOUR-YEAR-LONG presidential campaign that will inevitably begin on November 9, 2008. It's going to happen. I recently heard some politician on a news show state, "My job is to get re-elected."
   I'm certain he truly believes that, but I can't help wondering who the idiot was that put that notion into his tiny head, and why that notion was allowed to spread and take root within the American political arena.
   At all costs, we must correct this common belief and demonstrate exactly how wrong they are. If you don't vote, you'll have no reason to cry when you realize your voice has been silenced.

"If you don't vote, you'll have no reason to cry when you realize your voice has been silenced."

Yes, no matter what candidate people support, talk is cheap.   We all need to get to those voting booths, rain or shine. I was shocked at how many people I offered rides to during last election told me they weren't even registered voters.

i think rudy guiliani will probably end up winning in a real tight race to be honest i don't think a lot of men are ready for a woman in the white house.sad but true...
emilygComment by emilyg - November 8, 2007, 11:27 pm
But a lot of women are ready.

How can you not feel sick when you say something like that? Hillary Clinton? That conniving, self-serving, empty vessel? The one who has no ability to answer a question "yes" or "no" because it may offend a special interest group someplace? The one who supports driver's licenses for illegal aliens? The carpetbagger who set up shop in New York oinly to further her political ambitions?

If you want that, I surely hope you don't get your way.

Those who want to elect the first female president should wait for the right female.
josieComment by josie - November 9, 2007, 12:23 pm
Hillary will be our next President because she is the best candidate. She is also very smart, and not many men are ready to accept this fact.
TenajComment by Tenaj - November 9, 2007, 1:03 pm
What you have to remember here is to remember that opposing candidates and their croonies will say anything about the other candidate to sway votes. For the most part - lies. They know that some people don't know the truth. That statement about Hilliary granting licenses for illegal aliens is for those people who rarely uses a computer, read a newspaper etc., but will believe that just because it's propaganda they heard somebody say it. The ignorant masses. Hilliary never said that - the people who are saying this is saying that someone close to her heard her say it in private conversation. Hilliary has never said that.

Before you believe anything anybody say political remember that it's the media's job to sway your opinion and unless you know the kind of tricks that they play you will be fooled as well.

When the opposing candidates are winning in public opinion that's when a lie will surface and sometimes they will wait until very close to election time to spring something. They will use a big issue and tell lies about the other candidate. And a lot a people fall for it.

So you guys be smart and don't be a fool. Don't believe every damn thing you hear. Do your homework. Learn to recognize the tricks. Learn how TV, News, Internet, etc are used to sway public opinion.

I have done my homework. Hillary " Turn The Order Way While Husband Gets A B.J. " Clinton is another snake in the grass Democrat. Congress is one big mess right now because of her and her Democrat House ran croonies running the show. It doesn't take he said, she said. The proof is in the score card.

Why doesn't the Democratic Party change its name to what it really is; the Socialist/Communist Party. Shame on ya'll for using the tax system to punish the successful in this country. It is not the American way!! Read the Federalist Papers and the Virginia Papers. In the Virginia Papers, Jefferson said that governments job was to provide security for the nation and everything else was left up to the individual. You want an ex Black Panther, Commie bitch dyke for president? Remind me again, how many unexplained deaths are related to the Clintons? Over 50 people starting in Arkansas and running through 8 years in Washington. Goddamn, you stupid democrats will vote for anyone won't you?

I'm going to wait until next summer before choosing a candidate. I wouldn't want to pick one from the present field; I don't really feel that any of them are qualified for the position. From what I've seen, most of them refuse to take a hard position on some major issues such as the war on terror, illegal immigration and the wars we're fighting in the Middle East.
   I'm waiting for a candidate to emerge who says, "When I'm elected, I'll give the government back to the people. ALL elected officials will be accountable to the American public for their actions while in office; there will be NO blanket immunities - if you commit a crime against the people of America, you WILL be tried and jailed should you be found guilty, just like any other criminal. Whether congress gets a raise every year will be decided by an annual national referendum vote, and those raises will be based strictly on performance."
   This is probably about as far as he would get before the first shots were heard. Then the exhaustive inquiry would begin, the results of which would finally prove that my candidate committed suicide with a high-powered rifle from 400 yards away ...

No Janet, I actually heard her speak the words in the last debate. She was asked and she said something to the effect of "what else is the NY Governor supposed to do?" (It was a yes/no question, mind you.)

I am not a liar, I am not ignorant, and I am not stupid. Thanks so much for intimating that I am all of those things, and only trying to "sway votes". I say all of these things about that horrible woman because they have all taken place; they are true. The truth hurts, especially when you are blinded by desire.
