    I think people should look up the Vice President because if anything were to happen to the president the vice President will take over. If the vice president takes over the President’s chair he could do things that upset the people that voted for him and will never be trusted again.

    I think it’s important to consider the qualifications of the vice president because there’s always a chance that something could happen to the president which would make them the president. If they’re not qualified enough or you strongly disagree with them, you should rethink who you’re voting for.

    Yes, it is important for people to consider the Vice President because the Vice President some times has a lot to do with what the President does and if you do not like the Vice President people should really think about the President they are voting for.

    I think it is important to consider the qualifications of the vice president as heavily as the president election because if anything serious happens to the president the vice presidents will have to take over. I wouldn’t want a inexperienced person running the country I live in. We should look up to the vice president as much as we do to the president

    Yes, I think that the qualifications of the vice president heavily as the president because if the president dies he or she would have to take over and he or she resides over the Senate and makes a decision of breaking ties.

    I do think it is important to consider the qualifications of the vice president. I think that it would be a lot better, to have a president that has a very experienced vice- president. i think that you need a vice- president that you can rely on to help you make decisions. I think that if you don’t have a experienced vice- president, you might make the wrong decisions. That’s why I think it is important to consider the qualifications of the vice- president.

    I think it is important to consider the qualifications of the Vice President because the Vice President should be as experienced as the President. The Vice President should also be able to make the right choices as the President does so we vote for some one that we know can do a good job in office.

    I think the qualifications for vice president are important because if the president maybe dies then then one of the vice president will become the president and they will have to take all care of all the work and manage all the travling and bussiness to take care of.

  9. anthonym says:

    Yes, I think that the qualifications of the vice president heavily as the president because if the president dies he or she would have to take over and he or she has the responsibility of residing over the Senate and makes a decision of breaking ties.

    I think that vice president should be taken into consideration, but not to the point where it will change your outlook on the president. Just because you disagree with a few of the things the vice president favors in does not mean that you should change your whole mind on the president. Less than half of the vice presidents had to take over since 1789, you cannot just assume something is going to happen to the president.

    I would say that all of the American people should think that the vice president is trying to see on what will happen to which president will be elected for four years. For example on what the President will do: If the president had died from sickness or something than the vice president is in control of the United States and the other countries. But now the people in the US and other countries have made the wrong decision and feel ashame why they pick Obama or McCain as a new president.

    I think its important because the vice presidant will take over the presidants spot if anything happens to him.

  13. KrystinaS says:

    Yes, I think it is important to consider the qualifications of the vice president during election time because if anything were to happen to the president and the vice president is left to take over, then they should be experienced and knowledgeable about our country and the issues it has.

    Well to me I think that it is important to consider the vice presidents opinions as much as the president because if anything happens to the president like dies during presidency or is unable to perform the duties, the vice president will take over and become the new president. This is why I think it’s important to consider the vice presidents opinions

    I think that the vice president should have good qualifications because if the president reasigns or dies they should know how to be a good president and know the guidelines

  16. FrankieR says:

    I don’t think you should take the vice- presidents qualifications as heavily as the president because you are supposed to be focused on the president not the vice. The president is the one you want to leader your country the vice is just backing him up.

  17. MattG says:

    I think its yes because people want to know if the vice president can do and handle what happens if the president dies or gets ill. I also think that people should take in consideration how experienced the vice presidents are because if something happens that the president happens to not know what to do he needs to be able to ask his/her vice presidents for a good and reasonable answer.

    i think it is important that the vice president is in the election because he takes the job of the president if he dies like Abraham Lincoln

    I think it is extremely important because you want a good president and vice president. you canr just have a good president and a bad vice president.

  20. MarcS says:

    November 3rd, 2008 at 2:42 pm

    I think it is important because you want a good Vice President and if anything happens to the President the Vice will have to take over.

  21. ErikaD says:

    November 3rd, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    i think you should consider the qualifications of the vice president because if the president dies you need to know what the vice president would do

  22. JasminS says:

    November 3rd, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    To me I think it is important to learn about the Vice-President & because that vice-president is also important, cause if anything were to happen to the president then that will leave the Vice-President for President. I think that the Vice President plays a big part and I think we should pick the right and well leader as a vice president.

  23. AndrewG says:

    I think you should look into the Vice Presidents view and opinions because if the President turns ill or gets assassinated the Vice President well take the President’s spot in office. But I don’t think you should change your mind on a President because of a couple of different opinions on the Vice President.

  24. Daniela R says:

    i think that the vice president should have good qualifications and experience as well. if anything happens to the president the vice president should know what they are supposed to do in order to be a good president.

    I think it is important to consider the qualifications of the vice president as heavily as the president when you are voting in an election because if we dont then what happens if the president dies. this will be the person who will run our country if our president dies or becomes ill. OBAMA/BIDEN FOR THE CHANGE WE NEED!

    I think that we should think about how our vice president is like because that person might takeover. Then if we picked the wrong vice president we could be in a lot of trouble.
