Hows he ineligible?Term limits.
To be Vice President, you have to be eligible to be President, and since Bill Clinton has served two terms, he is not eligible to serve another term as President.
Did not know that about VP eligibility. Were there any early presidents who later served at VP?
Thanks. What you said.
You got that correct. Libs claim he could do almost two more years but that’s only if he took over another President’s term for less than two years. There is no partial term for him no matter what they think.
While I interpret it the way you do, there is a school out there which argues that the narrow wording of the 22nd Amendment defines qualifications for election to the presidency, while the 12th Amendment defines qualifications for service as POTUS. Those on this side of the argument would contend that Clinton (or GWB, for that matter) could sit on the ticket as VP and assume the presidency if needed, but would not be able to run for, or be elected to the office.
In short, a SCOTUS ruling would be in order to really say one way or the other, but it has never been tested.
