Why can't it go through? Other countries have democraticaly elected officials who have been in power for longer. (UK, Australia) Just because Bush is an idiot doesn't mean the ammendment shouldn't be rattified. The current term limits were added as ammendments in 1951.

It would allow CLinton to stand again, for example.

"blair is bush's puppet.....balh blah blah". who's to say the next president won't be as bad if not worse>

"couldn't get much worse" - only time will tell.

I think changing the rules about a president's time in office is a good thing. However, I think intorducing some sort of proportional representation in America would compliment this well. I can't see them going for PR though.

"our enemies are constantly thinking about ways to harm our country and our people.... and so are we"

To be honest I couldn't care either way if they bring the amendment in.

We have a view of Bush as an idiot, but he must be doing something right before being voted into the white house for a second term, so if what he is doing is what the population (or majority of at least) of America wants, then thats fine by me if they keep him in charge. that being the point in a democracy
