Yet, thanks to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution she cannot. It reads, "No person except a natural born citizen ... shall be eligible to the office of president." The 12th Amendment says the vice president cannot be foreign-born.


Elizabeth was born in Russia in 1998. She was adopted in 1998 and became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1999. If this outdated and unfair provision were amended, she could run for President in 2036. Let’s give her, and all the kids who have come to this country as naturalized citizens something patriotic and noble to strive for.
