Today’s Lympians! (let’s change the constitution for Carrie Prejean!)

OOoooo! ooo! I have one!

Oooh, darnit:

The Twelfth Amendment states that “no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.” Thus, to serve as Vice President, an individual must:

* Be a natural-born U.S. citizen;
* Not be younger than 35 years old; and
* Have lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years.
