    and two.

    Had Clinton lost in 1996, his presidency would have been regarded as a failure.  Had Carter survived and ridden the economic cycle in 1980-1984, he would have been regarded as a success.  

    Two terms Presidencies are even more important now.  By 2016, the judgment of history on the Bush Administration is going to start to ossify and the demographic and social changes will have made this a different country.  Even if Obama doesn't get much more of his agenda done, the impact of the full 8 years will be exponentially more important than the impact of the first four years alone.
