President Demoted

“The Next Best Thing to Being President”, a New York Times editorial (registration required), ponders the possibility of a John Kerry/Bill Clinton democratic ticket.

The exact constitutional language forbidding Clinton from being president again says nothing about him being vice president, nor does it forbid a former president from succeeding his way to the top again (the 22nd Amendment forbids being “elected to the office of the president more than twice.”).

Not sure what I think about that, but it’s one of those funny ‘what if’ situations to ponder. Of course if Clinton could legally become president again, unleash the conspiracy theories and watch out John Kerry.

  1. Are you sure he was talking about Bill? I can think of another Clinton who may take the seat (if she’s sure that Kerry can beat Bush anyway).

  3. I’m aware of that, Kevin. I’m just sure that Hilary’s going to get in the race one of these days. I don’t know why it fascinates me. I think that the Clinton’s are very interesting with how they can manipulate people and rise to power. Hilary will do it too, that’s my prediction anyway.
