2008 Presidential Election

From the Chicago Tribune:

Who Hillary needs on the ticket is Bill. Not just as a potential first spouse, but as an actual vice presidential candidate.

"Wait a minute," I can hear you saying. "Bill served eight years already and can't run anymore."

True enough. The 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does restrict a sitting president to two terms in office. But it doesn't say anything about preventing such a person from running for vice president.

The 12th Amendment states that anyone who is eligible for the presidency under Article II is eligible for the vice presidency. As a natural-born American older than 35, Bill Clinton qualifies, and there's nothing in the 22nd Amendment to disqualify him based on his years as president.

Imagine. A Democratic ticket in 2008 made up of both Clintons. Who could beat that combination?

He's Southern spice; she's Northern ice [emphasis mine--Darren]. It's a marketing duo made in political heaven.

It would be nice to vote against both of them on one ticket.

Can I get elected to speaker of the house? Then when some nutcase shoots Hillary because he doesn't like a woman as president, Bill CAN'T SERVE!!! I'd also like to vote against both of them at once :)

Allow me to go on record as saying that I do *not* support or advocate the killing of US government officials, except for members of the 9th Circuit Court (who ruled that such advocacy is protected by the 1st Amendment) as outlined in a post from a couple months ago.
