What are you basing this conclusion on here

The amendment didn't exist when FDR was in office. He got elected to four terms, died during his fourth term. It was after that that the constitution was amended to not allow presidents more than two terms.

This is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. It is dangerous, it is selfish, it is what bullies and assholes do. I seriously cannot stand the right-wing these days. John McCain is the ONLY republican(in any kind of current office, that is) that I have any real respect for.

I want Obama to run in '08. You know what's sad? The top two current contendors for the '08 DNC nomination are Obama and Hilary, and I really can't picture a nation that voted a biggoted moron like W in TWICE voting a woman or a black man in. That's just my cynical side showing though. BOTH WILL happen sooner or later, hopefully sooner.

Go Obama!

And fuck this idiotic right-wing proposal.

while i totally agree with you on the pont about the Constitution, Europeans have not had to deal with apocalyptic, 9-11 style terrorism. to equivocate between, say, the IRA, Beider-Meinhoff, or the ETA, and radical Islamist fundamentalists is a massive underestimation of the problem. we are facing a new world with an enemy that the West as a whole really doesn't understand very much, nor do we seem to care to understand right now.
