    Does it also state the the Pres and VP cannot be from the same state as well?

    And as it is a partial term as she was sworn into office, he can run in the following 2 elections.
    Except for the last sentence of the 12th amendment:

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

    Hussein Obama cannot be a running mate for any presidential candidate before or after he leaves office.

    That said, it's a bad idea and it won't happen.
    He cannot even do that. Read the 12th amendment.

    Thank you for that - but perhaps I needed to be corrected a little bit. I suppose, from the wording you provided, that Obama could run for a seat in the House of Representatives and he could be elected by that body to serve as the Speaker of the House. If the President and/or Vice-President happened to be assassinated in the same attack, could he then serve as President or Vice-President or would it skip to the next in line?
    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.

    And the lawyers speak, not, and certainly not I. Posted as it would make for a lively debate.
    I am far from knowledgeable on your Constitution.
    Same reason i had asked another member if the Constitution clearly states the separation of Church and State.
    And lo and behold it does not for some, but another interesting discussion?????

    VP Bill? Depends on Meaning of 'Elected'

    You are wrong on three counts. While I am not claiming that Palin was a stellar candidate, she is the only reason the McCain ticket had any chance at all. McCain had a problem with the conservative base. They all thought he was an "ass". Could McCain have picked a better running mate with conservative credentials? Absolutely. However Palin did draw bigger crowds then McCain did, at least initially.

    As for qualifications, If you think Palin was not qualified, Obama was even less qualified. At least Palin had executive experience as governor. Obama did not.....and it shows.

    As for tipping points, Obama's success was significant African American turnout and winning over the youth vote. Had nothing to do with McCain's running mate.

    Theoretically, does that preclude an ex-President from occupying any role that falls in the line of succession?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    That is a good question. My opinion is that he would still be ineligible. That would take more research then the 12th amendment issue. He could run for congress though.
