Bill Clinton popped into MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, for some reason. Perhaps because all the dentists offering root canals were booked at the time? Oh, yes, he had to promote his new policy book! Anyhoo, he really wants to be president again.
Joe Scarborough asked Clinton, "Shouldn't a president be able to take two terms, take time off and run again? Shouldn't Americans have that choice?" Obviously! Bill Clinton thought. "I've always thought that should be the rule." But then he took a modest turn, for annoying "practical" reasons: "I think as a practical matter, you couldn't apply this to anyone who has already served, but going forward, I personally believe that should be the rule." Eh, he can get that caveat waived later. Or he's thinking, three terms for Hillary + three terms for Chelsea = six more terms for me, me me me, Bill!
Do you, dear readers, think presidents should be allowed to serve a nonconsecutive third term? Or would this be a slippery slope towards tyranny and/or the apocalypse?
