Article 2 Clause 5 of the US Constitution States: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of
the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not
have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Which means...(just to clarify for younger members)
1. You must have been born in the United States.
2. If NOT born in the US, you must have been made a citizen before the US Constitution was put into law. So, unless you're a vampire, highlander, or
other immortal, no dice....
3. You must be 35 or older.
4. Even if you meet ALL of the above, you must have lived in the US for 14 of those years or more.
