I wish a robot would get elected president. That way, when he came to town, we could all take a shot at him and not feel too bad. –Jack Handey

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I know you can't be president unless you were born in this country (sorry, Arnold) but can you be vice president? I know that the VP is the next in line for the presidency if something happens to the P, but the Secretary of State is right after him (her) and we've had non-native Secretaries before (Albright, Kissinger), so maybe it would just skip over him/her. (On the other hand, the VP doesn't really have that much to do besides be the presidential heir apparent. Unless you count breaking ties in the Senate and hanging out in undisclosed locations.) What do you think?

A: Dear Native Daughter,

I believe that the VP must meet the same qualifications as the president. I believe that was established in 1947 in the law concerning presidential sucession.
