    never happen.
    3 terms of somebody like Clinton? no conservative would buy it
    3 terms of somebody like Bush? no liberal would buy it.

    Actually, I wouldn't mind. Sometimes great leaders come along and the country could be well served by allowing them to continue. as much as i know I'm going to get flamed from both sides of this, I wouldn't have minded another reagan term(bush senior--ugh) and I would have even considered another term of Clinton--because at the time I actually thought clinton did okay. I voted for bush last time, but I wasn't all super excited about him--I just thought he was better than Kerry. back when clinton left I certainly thought higher of him than either bush or gore. tough call though, because a few things clinton was doing really irked me (but then that always seems to be the case).

    one quick question though, shouldn't this apply to hillary, I mean she was acting as president for 8 years, even if it wasn't offical...:)

    I would LOVE a law like that in Canada. After a good 12 years of Jean, anything would have been better.

    Well you americans are lucky, you only have to put up with 1 guy fro at the most 8 years. We've had tony blair for 9 years now, 3 election victories, and the damn guy doesnt seem to want to leave anytime soon. Although i think the only reason he won this election was lack of credible oposition, a 2 term max would be better than having 1 person go on for decades.
    Anyway, in america, i see no reason why it needs to be changed, and if it aint broke, dont fix it. although having someone like bush for 12 years...scary. :eek:

    Agreed, it'll never pass. I still wouldn't mind though. oh, and beer is liquid bread...you need 6-11 servings per day! (or is that the old pyramid?)

    Perhaps fear of Hillary as the Democrat nominee and the backlash?

    For the record, I wouldn't support Pres. Bush for a 3rd term. 8 years of the same ideas? No thanks, I want a fresh perspective. GOV. HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENT!

    Right....

    I live in Canada as well

    Lets look at the great alternatives

    Conservatives : Mr. Fundamentalist Harper (i hate when religious folks use religion to decide their political agenda choices)

    NDP : Lets throw away our vote YES

    Bloc : Lol? The only thing this party is concerned with is seperating the country. Anything else is much more secondary

    Even though Martin and the Liberals are crooks and liars they are still a lesser evil in my mind than the rest.

    I never said any of that. I was referring to JC himself, not the Grits. I actually think they're on okay party. Sure they're plagued by scandal, but I like their politics, for the most part.

    That is the FIRST thing that caught my eye also, it is bad politics. Most people will ignore it was a Dem that introduced it, just it was introduced at this time, and blame the repubs.

    Same thing as a Democrat raising the spectre of the draft, right? Didn't they do that in the months leading up to the election?

    The sad thing is, it isn't a very clever trick--yet it works.

    While I liked the idea of having a third term of Clinton, it's not worth the sacrifice of having a shot at three terms of Bush. It'd be great to keep a great leader for longer than two, but as I said, it's not worht the risk of getting a hypnotic speaker who is a horrible ruler in office for very long.

    Please don't tell me you just described Bush as a 'hypnotic speaker' :p
