I was reading through the Constitution and no where does it say that the Vice President must be a natural born citizen. Is this true? I know it is true of the President, but what if Arnold wants to become the VP along with Condoleeza Rice as President in 2008? is it possible?
No…the VP has to meet the same qualifications for president. If they didn’t they could not take the presidents place if that need came up.
Well hell they should put that in the constitution!
