(The Roar Of The Masses Could Be Farts)
There really is a grandfather clause in Section 1, Article 2:
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
I seem to recall that John Tyler was the first President who wasn't grandfathered in, but I may be wrong. It's been a couple decades since my Constitutional Studies classes in college.
