Can a president that has served 2 terms then become vice president?
NO- a president who has served two terms can not be the vice-president.
Thomas Jefferson served four years as vice-president and two terms as President. No other president that served two full terms was ever vice-president. Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge , Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson all served at least two years as vice president, became President and then were elected to one term of their own, but none served two full terms as President. Franklin Roosevelt ran for vice president but was not elected.
Can a vice president replace a deceased president after having alredy served two terms as president?
Who was the only vice president to become president that did not succeed the president he served under?
Yes! There are no restrictions on how many terms . consecutive or otherwise , that a vice-president can serve, provided he is eligible to serve as president. ( A vice-president who later served two terms as president would not be allowed to come back and serve as vice-president again. ) No vice-president has yet served non consecutive terms but Charles Fairbanks , who was vice president from 1905 to 1909 ran again for vice president…
No. See Amendment 12 of the US Constitution last sentence - "But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." Since the president has already served two-4 yr terms he/she would be ineligble to be elected President again, therefore would also be ineligble to be Vice-President as well.
What if the speaker of the house of representatives has already been president and the vice president and president die?
Can a past president who was elected to two terms be elected as vice president in a subsequent election?
The constitution forbids any president to serve for longer than two terms now. The duty of a vice president is to become president should the current president die or resign. Thus, someone who has served as president twice is unable to become a vice president because they are forbidden from fulfilling their role and taking a third term.
The position of president can only be filled for 2 full terms or a maximum of 10 years meaning if a vice president were to take over as president and serve as president for less than 2 years he could still serve for 2 full 4 year terms. However, these limitations only apply for the president not the vice president. Therefore, an eligible person can be vice president for unlimited terms. (However, a person who…
Yes. Richard Nixon served as Dwight Eisenhower's VP from 1953 to 1961, and was elected as President in 1968 and 1972. Of course he didn't complete 2 full terms as President due to the Watergate scandal which forced his resignation in 1974. Also, if George H. W. Bush had won the election of 1992, he, too, would have served two terms as Vice President and two terms as President.
No, he may not. To serve as vice president, one must be eligible to be president. The 22nd amendment to the Constitution of the United States prohibits presidents from serving more than two terms. Bill Clinton, for example, could not be Hillary Clinton's VP because he has already served two terms as president.
Yes. The Constitution has no limitation to serving as Vice President... only President. That limitation is two elected terms or 10 years. As a recent example, Vice President Bush served for two full terms under Reagan before running and winning the Presidency. He also ran for a second term against Clinton but lost. VP Gore served two terms and ran after that for Presidency and won (but still lost)... but thats another story. The real…
