9. He's eligible

He's older than 35, lived in the US at least 14 years, and is a natural-born citizen.

The 22nd amendment says "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice..."

If he were vice-president and ascended to the Presidency, he wouldn't have been elected to it. It's a loophole, for sure, and it will never be tested, but it's not clear-cut.
