I read this on fox news.....
According to an emolument clause in the Constitution, no lawmaker can be appointed to any civil position that was created or received a wage increase during the lawmaker's time in office.
President Bush ordered Cabinet salaries raised to $191,300 from $186,600 by executive order early this year, while Clinton was senator.
Clinton was a senator then so it makes her ineligable. Do you think they should go around the constitution? And if not who do you think would be a good choice?

Anon:That case Biden can't be VP too. And Obama can't be President-elect
Uhhh, NO. The emolument clause states that she may barred from serving in a confirmable position within the executive branch if that position has had its pay increased while they were serving in Congress. Biden and Obama were elected into their upcoming position.
