    A Modest Proposal: Barack Obama Should Be Hillary Clinton's Running Mate
    Obama couldn't be VP any more than Bill Clinton could. both have already served two terms.

    No he couldn't. Theoretically, all he could do is finish her term.

    That said, it's a bad idea and it won't happen.

    Remind's me of this, for whoever the Republican nominee is.
    Oh come on, haven't you been reading lately? They have another issue, Hillary. She has been so harangued for so many years, and while in so many positions, that they don't have anything but petty bullcrap or long overused accusations that most everyone is tired of hearing, and generally have been proven false or at least no solid evidence has ever been disclosed.

    Now I'd rather Hillary not be the Democratic choice, but she is now and will continue to scream, because they're not solution minded anymore, they're just run around screaming the sky is falling.

    I believe a US constitutional scholar from Alberta, Canada is no more reliable than this US constitutional scholar from Ontario, Canada. All things being equal, I believe my interpretation is far more logical than yours. But you could be right.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Well when Obama was running against McCain, I figured McCain had it, until Sarah came along.
    More I listened to her, my oh my I knew she was completely unqualified.
    She was a tipping point for Obama.

    Sounds a lot like Putin and Medvedev. Perhaps next we should set up a politburo and show photos of Hillary topless on horseback.

    No need to be corrected. You are correct. It's covered in the 12th Amendment to the US Constitution:

    "But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States."

    I stand corrected. Though I think he could run in another election.
    I forgot the link when I posted the OP.
    My bad.

    There are three sections of the Constitution that prescribe limits on who can be president and vice president: Article II, the Twelfth Amendment and the Twenty-Second Amendment. While the former two limit who is “eligible” to serve—natural born citizens, 35 or older—the Twenty-Second Amendment begins “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.”

    Whether its adopters intended it or not, the plain language of the Twenty-Second amendment doesn’t prohibit a former two-term president from succeeding a sitting president and serving out the remainder of her term. It merely prohibits him from running for a third. By using the term “elected” instead of “eligible,” its authors created a loophole large enough for a Clinton-Obama ticket to coast to victory through.
