Interesting -- but unlike the days of the Founding Fathers, the VP and Prez have to come from the same party.

Exactly like the days of the Founding Fathers, there is no Constitutional requirement or mandate forcing a Presidential candidate to choose only from his or her own political party the Vice Presidential candidate. Political parties may have some rule to this regard, but no political party has any Constitutional mandate and certainly does not have the lawful authority to prevent a Presidential candidate from choosing a Vice Presidential candidate from a different political party
