Bush was apparently going to pick Cheney even if he couldn't get residency in another state. But the main reason is because the VP always seems to be for balancing the ticket and/or trying to pick up a key swing state.That is why no nominee for President picks a running mate from the same state.
His successes in passing his domestic agenda almost completely during his fourth term without much controversy sticking to him probably earned him his second term in 2020. That’s not to say there was no controversy at all: the number of states where marihuana was legal increased to 23 by 2020 and possession while medical use was legal in 27 states, eight of which had decriminalized recreational use as well. The liberal climate had more effects: California became the second state after Nevada to legalize prostitution as well as organizing activities like brothels; New York wouldn’t go that far, and instead decriminalized it like Rhode Island had already done. None of these things that aggravated the Republicans stuck to Kennedy himself as these were decisions made by state governments. The Republicans had to bite their tongue as they could hardly argue for reducing state rights after years of arguing the opposite.
JFK Jr. would not be able to pick Hillary Clinton as his running mate because they live in the same state. However, would Hillary still move to New York ITTL?
No he could, New Yorks electors and only their electors can't vote for Hillary as VP.
