        You can't fix the system by putting limits on individual office holders. That's also true, btw, when it comes to limiting money spent on political campaigns. If the candidates for office are unsavory, they will not be improved by limiting how much citizens can spend.
        The Uncle Cons operate by indirection.  It is part of their pattern of deceit. So, for example, McCain's partnering with Feingold restricted law-abiding citizens while the money bags like Perry of Texas, Stephens of Arkansas and the AIG guy from Ohio bought influence by the barrel.
