    If the office of POTUS has an 8 year limit so should ALL elected positions.

    You think that we're dealing with an entrenched bureaucracy and shadow government now? Enact strict term limits and see what happens. You automatically turn all functions over to staffers and bureaucrats, since any and all elected officials with experience or knowledge are forced out of office.

    That's why. She brings votes and small dollar donations in tow. That vocal, purity committed base of the GOP votes and pays regularly, and she's connected to it, so she matters and that's why she's there.

    I might be in the minority with the sane thinkers (wink) on this board but I'm for two 6 year terms in House and Senate and then back to civilian life. New blood helps give a different perspective of things. Having some of these idiots (both R and D) in CONgress has made DC a laughing stock.

    That won't happen until the money is taken out of politics, and the current DEM/GOP party systems are neutered. Anymore, elections are more about keeping a party in power, rather than actually holding office.
