Sorry, Bert Blyleven, You Can't Be Vice President

During the Twins game against the Royals, currently still going on as I write, a fan sign declared their wish for Bert Blyleven to be President.  Blyleven admitted that he could not be President, because he was born in Holland.  But then he said that he could be Vice-President.

Sorry, Bert.  The same standard applies to the Vice President.  It's right in the 12th Amendment:  "But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States."

Seeing as Bert was going to make a Flat-Tax part of his platform, it's probably for the best that he's not eligible.
