There is nothing legally wrong with it, and it has happened before.
 
However, once a President is out, he is seen by the Americans as a has been and they welcome the New, Naive and Inexperienced, rather than the firm hand and experienced former President who has a long list of friends and acquaintances in 'The System' already.
 
I always considered it a weakness that the American people could not vote for a good successful president.
 
By any measure, Clinton was a good president. (Blow Jobs in the Oval Office notwithstanding, but hey, if you were the most powerful man in the world what would you do?)
 
After two terms he had to go, even if most Americans wanted him to remain in office and continue with the job, he was disbarred.
Hardly seems democratic that the people's choice cannot be chosen.
(Yes, I know WHY there is a two term limit, but that argument is fallacious, you do not need to impose a limit when the constitution allows you to bear arms AGAINST your government.)

I will never again mention that I was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel. Dalek Dave
