3. IIRC, one must be eligible to be elected POTUS to be elected VP, and Obama is not eligible

anymore because of his 2 POTUS terms.

5. It's not clear that the Constitution would even allow that.

The result would be unnecessary controversy and litigation, which we really don't need right now. And it's almost obscene to ask Obama to sacrifice himself again. He deserves to have a life after eight years of what must be the worst job on earth - and the same goes for Michelle. It will not happen. Nor will Cuomo, Oprah, or any of the other ridiculous suggestions that have been thrown around here, all of which are in effect outright insults to the highly qualified women who are already on his short list.

6. No- Presidents can only serve two terms

The main reason for having a VP is for them to become President in case of the death of the President.

9. It's a gray area. The constitution does not say presidents can only serve two terms...

...reather, it says they cannot be ELECTED to the office more than twice. If Obama were elected to the office of VP (not President), but then was elevated to the position of president through other circumstances, that is not literally prohibited by the language of the amendment.

8. With respect, no.

We fortunately have a wealth of good talent in the party. No reason to reach back.

Besides, Obama did his service.
