Article 2, Section 2 or the Constitution of the United States reads:

"The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session."

Who can run for president in the Republican Party?

The US Constitution places these qualifications on a candidate for President: 1. Must be at least 35 years of age. 2. Must be a natural born US Citizen. Actually, the Constitution does NOT place any restrictions on who may RUN for President. The Constitution does, however, place restrictions on who may SERVE as President. A person who is 33 years old, for example, could run for President and be elected President. That person, however, could not actually serve as President until their 35th Birthday. The Vice-President (assuming the Vice-President qualifies as President) would serve then served as ACTING PRESIDENT until the President-Elect attains the age of 35 years. This is covered in the 20th Amendment. The Constitution also restricts from SERVING as President: 1. Anyone who has previously been elected to the Office of President twice 2. Anyone who has previously been elected to the Office of President once AND served more than half of the term for which someone else was elected. An example of this would be a Vice-President taking over for a President who has died or otherwise been removed from office.

When Congress passes a law is that an example of checks and balances?

Since the Constitution places the power and responsibility for passage of legislation with the Congress, passing a law is more an example of the basic function of the legislative branch than an example of checks and balances. However, it could become an example of checks and balances if Congress passes a law, the President vetoes it, and Congress then overrides the President's veto as provided in the Constitution.

Why does a judge go over the oath of office?

The judge-- actually a Supreme Court Justice-- does not go over the oath. He reads the oath and the president repeats it, agreeing that he will defend and protect the Constitution and faithfully carry out the duties of being president. Customarily, the president places his hand on a bible to swear the presidential oath, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme court administers it to the president. This is a well-established ritual in American inaugurations.
