House of Cards: Hillary and Bill

I read an article in the Wall Street Journal this morning that seriously considered the prospects of Bill  as Vice President for Hillary, or was it the other way around? The article is confusingly misdated 2007 but concerns this year’s (2016) Presidential election.

A commentator poured cold water on the idea with legal facts:

The Vice President must be eligible for the Presidency per the 12th Amendment.  Bill Clinton is no longer eligible to be President so he cannot be VP either.  Also, the President and VP cannot be from the same state.

Those who have been watching Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright in House of Cards will be aware that this  season’s plot twist is the joint candidacy of their characters Frank and Claire Underwood  for election as President and Vice-President of the United States.

Trial balloon?

It does not matter. Trump is going to beat Hillary like a baby seal.
