  •  Yes, term limits at the top only... (2+ / 0-)

    the revolving door of future lobbyists replacing those who graduate to corporate reward posts is poisoning state legislatures... They should be removed at the state level...

    But at the top nationally term limits for the president protects democracy from the danger of creeping dictatorship. And that should be the only place it is used.

    Putin is a great example of how even term limits intent can be evaded... but having only a recent weak democratic tradition made that possible over there... We could re-elect Obama after an interim presidency with someone else...

    But that is a big maybe with a ton of unknowns to come.

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
