  •  Term limits aren't a great solution (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    At the margins, shorter terms (and term limits) are a good idea, but there are big problems associated with them.

    California legislature has pretty severe term limits, and the end result is that it's decreased accountability, legislative oversight of the governor's office, and the expertise to screen out bad provisions in bills--all while having no effect on careerism or heavy dependence on fundraising.
