Actually, the requirements for running for presidency have been the same since the year George Washington accepted the presidency. It’s the quality of people who see themselves worthy of being President that keeps declining.

Here are the requirements for being a presidential candidate (taken from the Library of Congress website):

As directed by the Constitution, a presidential candidate must be a natural born citizen of the United States, a resident for 14 years, and 35 years of age or older. These requirements do not prohibit a woman from being president, yet this has yet to occur

Never lose hope.
