    Obama Could Replace Kamala As Biden’s Running Mate

    Published on

    The fact that President Joe Biden fell on Thursday while walking across the stage after delivering a speech at the Air Force Academy will undoubtedly play a significant role in advertisements run by the Republican party to reinforce the notion that Biden is too old and frail to serve as president for another four years. The unpopularity of the vice president, Kamala Harris, worsens his chances of being reelected.

    Philip Allen Lacovara, an opinion columnist for The Messenger, believes that Barack Obama is the answer to Biden’s intentions for four more years as president.

    “To bolster his chances for reelection, Biden needs to engage in some out-of-the-box creativity,” Lacovara said. “Biden might rescue his faltering hope of reelection in one seemingly impossible way — asking the highly popular, former President Barack Obama to step in to replace Harris on the 2024 ticket.”

    In 2015, The Washington Post published an article containing the preposterous notion. Prior to the conclusion of the Obama-Biden administration, there were discussions about a similar ticket.

    The Constitution prohibits a former president who has served two terms from standing as a candidate on the presidential ticket. The 22nd Amendment prohibits a candidate from serving more than two terms as president. The 12th Amendment prohibits the selection of a vice president who is ineligible for the presidency. The vice president assumes the role of president if the president resigns or dies in office, which Obama cannot do according to the 22nd Amendment because he has already served the maximum two-year term.

    Lacovara believes there is an answer to this problem.

    The author explains how this could occur despite the 22nd Amendment. The author believes that “both Biden and Obama owe it to the country to consider using it” despite the unlikelihood of this being the Democrat’s ideal team, with Obama being the Vice President only in name and actually calling the shots as commander-in-chief.

    “While Obama is precluded from ever running again for election as president, the amendment does not prohibit him from running for any other office, including vice president,” Lacovara stated. “Nor does the last sentence of the 12th Amendment disqualify him. It stipulates that ‘no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States’ (emphasis added). For several reasons, this requirement does not expand Obama’s inability under the 22nd Amendment to run for election as president.”
