The Twelfth Amendment states that "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." Thus, to serve as Vice President, an individual must:
* Be a natural-born U.S. citizen;
* Not be younger than 35 years old; and
* Have lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years.
What is, or was, the reason and the purpose of the age requirement?
