  2. I think the constitution requires the president, house of representative, and senate to be at least these minimum ages is because that’s how long its takes from them to be qualified ( be involved in the politics and government areas). For example, they can be a mayor or a lawyer.

  3. Good thinking! We've also found that maturity is a necessary characteristic of our government leaders.
