    The provision for a Vice-president is contained in Art. II IIRC . Otherwise an excellent job, for a bloody Kraüt. :D

    Art. II, Section I

    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:

    The so-called confederate constitution had an interesting twist, as to the Vice I with-hold comment upon current events-president.

    The Confederate president can only serve a single, six-year term, unlike the US president, who (at the time) could be re-elected forever.

    Interestingly, the Confederate vice president could be re-elected.

    Bold & smilie is mine:

    Welcome to ConstitutionFacts.com where you'll see the entire text of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence - and much more! You'll find interesting insights into the men who wrote the Constitution, how it was created, and how the Supreme Court has interpreted the United States Constitution in the two centuries since its creation.


    The Constitution is certainly the most influential legal document in existence. Since its creation some two hundred years ago, over one hundred countries around the world have used it as a model for their own. And it is a living document. It is one of the world's oldest surviving constitutions. And, while the Supreme Court continually interprets the U.S. Constitution so as to reflect a rapidly changing world, its basic tenets have remained virtually unchanged since its inception, and unchallenged as well.
    People quarrel over its interpretation, but never do they question the wisdom of its underlying principles. ;)

    At ConstitutionFacts.com, you'll begin to see why. You'll get a taste of some of the Founding Fathers' thoughts. You'll see some of the reasoning behind the Supreme Court's landmark decisions. But, most importantly, you'll get a feel for the United States Constitution itself and how it is that a document that was written over 200 years ago still plays an integral role in our everyday lives.
