Many Americans would like to believe, barring an unlikely repeal of the 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution Barack Obama would never be able to run on a Presidential ticket again. However, given the Democrat Party's addiction to stretching and twisting U.S. laws to steal victories when failure is imminent, Americans cannot ignore the very real possibility of a Clinton/Obama ticket in 2016.
Be advised, lack of legal clarity has always been Obama and the Democrat Party's greatest ally in their war on American traditions. Obama is a shameless specialist in murky law and questionable executive orders designed to trample on the U.S. constitution. After having read a variety of opinions from differing schools of legal thought, I have come to a troubling conclusion that a history making 2016 Hillary/Barack Democrat ticket could be in the works. Let me attempt to explain.
The 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides for the prohibition or the disqualification, for "election" only, to a third presidential term, for anyone who has held the Office of President for 2 terms or 8 years. It does not define a candidates "eligibility" to hold that office. The 12th amendment to the Constitution defines Presidential and Vice-Presidential "eligibility."
The U.S. Constitution's 12th amendment bars, from both the Presidency and Vice-presidency, those persons who are "ineligible to the office" of President. Presidential eligibility requirements as defined by law are a person being a natural born citizen (I know, I know), who is over the age of 35 with 14 years of prior documented U.S. residency. Therefore, it can be argued that Obama, although prohibited or disqualified from being "elected" to the Office of President for a third term, is not disqualified from being nominated to, winning, and holding the Office Of Vice President because he meets (I know, I know) the eligibility requirements to be President.
