VP eligibility?

Could any former president who served 2 terms and not eligible to run as president again be a VP candidate or would that person be ineligible? No mention of people just a general question about the rules. Thank you.

Let me Google that for you.

"Could any former president who served 2 terms and not eligible to run as president again be a VP candidate"

Vice President of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Under the Twenty-second Amendment, the President of the United States may not be elected to more than two terms. However, there is no similar such limitation as to how many times one can be elected Vice President. Scholars disagree whether a former President barred from election to the Presidency is also ineligible to be elected Vice President, as suggested by the Twelfth Amendment.[18][19] The issue has never been tested in practice.

Since this was a simple question, easily answered, and is politics not related to FIRE we have decided to close the thread.
