To be President of the U.S. you must be 35 years old, be a "natural born citizen" of the U.S. and have been a permanent resident for the last 14 years.

In addition, the person cannot have served more than one previous complete term, cannot have been impeached by the Senate or have, imagine this, participated in a rebellion against the U.S.

Can the vice president after serving 8 yrs with the president run with a new presidential candidate ie hillarybiden ticket?

yes, that would be legal The office of the U.S. Vice President has no bearing on the term limits of the President that were established in 1952 with the ratification of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. If someone were to serve five full terms as Vice President, for example, he/she would still be eligible to be elected President twice. The only way that the term limits affect the Vice Presidency is that the Constitution requires that in order to run for Vice President, one must be eligible to be President. Therefore, someone who has been elected President twice could not run for Vice President. (There are some who believe that the presidential eligibility requirements for the vice presidency are only the age, citizenship and residency requirements and that having been elected President twice does not prohibit someone from running for Vice President. The opportunity to settle the debate in the courts has never come up.)
