Well, that’s a relief

Amendment XII to the Constitution ends with this:

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

That seems straightforward. Amendment XXII is also direct and to the point:

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.

All of this is to burst the bubble, however gently, of those who salivate over a Hill and Bill ticket.

It would never come to pass, of course — both Hill and Bill are far too devious and clever to make their intentions that obvious. But, given that the Democrats are somewhat in thrall to trial lawyers, I wouldn’t put it past some Donk wienies to try to lawyer their way around these two amendments.

After all, it depends on what “no” means.
