6. I don't know...I think a president should be given three terms, not two.

Generally, the second term amounts to little for any president because we already know he's done no matter what. I have hope Obama will be able to do more in his second term, but it's rare a president gets near the level of his agenda through as he did in his first.

So, giving a President three terms allows for the potential to have a second term defined by policy and not lameduck status, which almost always happens the second after his inauguration.

Yes, I get some people fear the possibility of Bush getting a third term, but that wasn't going to happen. Had Bush run for a third term, which I even doubt he would have, Obama would've kicked his ass worse than he kicked McCain's.

Give a president three potential terms to shape the country.
