Since the vice President must be capable of taking over the Presidency in the event of the death or disability of the President, the vice President has the same requirements as the President. That is, at least 35 years of age, and a US citizen born in the US.
It is written into the US Constitution. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution sets the requirements to hold office. One of these requirements is that the President must be a natural born citizen of the United States.
Actually, a number of presidents have tried to associate themselves with improving education, but most recently, because of the passage of the "No Child Left Behind" act, former US President George W. Bush was called "the education president" by his supporters.
The US Constitution imposeses these requirements to be eligible to be elected President: 1. Must be at least 35 years of age. 2. Must be a natural born US citizen. 3. Must reside within the US for at least 14 years.
