Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #16

What is the first part of the first section of the second article of the U.S. Constitution?

My two cents, but please share yours:

“Article. II. Section. 1.

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.”

  1. Why FOUR years? Did you ever wonder?

    • That’s a great question, Mona! I never thought about that before. Maybe someone believed five years was too long. Cheers, Ashley
