    Another what if question.

    At the Democratic National Convention, what if they had a surprise announcement....that Joe Biden was not going to be the running mate for VP, but Bill Clinton is running on the Obama ticket????

    Crazy?

    Anything is possible in a desperate move to hang onto power.....IMO.

    WHAT IF???

    There is nothing in the Constitution that prevents this, is there?

    :eek:

    Not off the top of my head. A similar situation existed in 1980 when Reagan almost picked former President Ford. The Consitution says no more than two consecutive terms. Also, he would be Vice President, not President. I would think however, that he would pick Hillary. Personally, I think either would be an improvement over Biden.

    Hillary is going to be out of the country during the DNC. In Asia or thereabouts. First time she has missed since 1968....

    A winner would be if Billy boy nominated Hillary! The leftists would go crazy and I am afraid the majority of voters would follow like sheep led to the slaughter!

    The Obama administration has been a third term for the Clintons and Bushies from the start.

    Obama is a globalist same as the Clintons and warmonger just like the Bushies.

    It's like an evil trio has teamed up to kill the sovereignty of this nation and keep it in war to the breaking point.

    We're almost there now. Go ahead and vote for change. The only thing that'll change is the face in the camera lens. Romney is sure to be a warmonger look at his "foreign policy team" 110% neocon. And he's a friend of the global bankers and corporitos.

    Same as Obama, Bush and the Clintons.

    To bad y'all booted the only man willing to stand up for you to the curb. Yer gonna get just what ya asked for again. More government, more war, more debt, more poor people, more suffering and less freedom.

    It would be unconstitutional.

    Twenty-Fifth Amendment:
    Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

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

    Thank you. But Obama has trampled on the Constitution several times and no one has stopped him (including Republicans) or the SCOTUS.
