NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – While Republicans are struggling to pick their nominee for president in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, the Democrats are in a conundrum on who will be their vice presidential nominee.
But it is up to Hillary Clinton, not the Democrats, to pick her running mate. On Sunday, Clinton officially declared her candidacy for president. No other Democrat has expressed any desire to challenge Clinton.
Today, in her home state of New York, Hillary announced that she has picked husband Bill to be her running mate.
The U.S. Constitution limits the presidential term to a total of eight years, so Bill is ineligible to run again for president. But the constitution says nothing about a two-term president running for vice president!
Capitalizing on this constitutional loophole, Hillary picked her husband as her VP running mate.
“I think this would be the ultimate dream team; ” Hillary told reporters, “the American people will get two presidents for the price of one!”
There are amendments to the constitution that vaguely address whether or not a former two-term president can seek the vice presidency, and the Republican National Committee — caught offguard by Hillary’s announcement — is scrambling to challenge her choice of running mate.
The final decision may eventually rest with the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the meantime, Americans get two “everyday heroes.” Clinton and Clinton.
