Can a person who cannot vote for President, become President in 2012?


My reference is to the rising GOP star, Luis Fortuno, the handsome young Governor of Puerto Rico. He's been mentioned as a possible running mate to Mitt Romney. The caveat is that Fotuno, like all people of Puerto Rico, cannot vote in the presidential elections. They are citizens of the U.S., but like the residents of D.C., they cannot vote in the biggest of all the electoral sweepstakes. So is it possible, Fortuno could be the new V.P. and then just a heartbeat away from the Presidency? Remember that there are now 50 million latino voters in the States who can vote for President.

    Would he not have to me the Residency requirement, by living in one of the 50 states? To vote for President Puerto Ricans must live in the US.
