1. Reaganhood liked to 'joke' about voters wanting him for a 3rd term.

It seemed to be a cover story, because immediately upon leaving office, Reagan disappeared from public view. President G. H. Bush blew the cover when he very soon publicly admitted to the effect that Reagan would not be seen in public.

2. Didn't Giuliani try talking about a third term? Said he was needed because of 9/11

4. Then Bloomberg went out and bought the rule change allowing himself a third term.

Rudy was hated in NYC. There was no way he was getting a third term.

3. Term limits was their idea

They didn't like FDR winning four terms. It immediately bit them in the ass. Eisenhower could have won a third term easily. Maybe Reagan too.

Clinton and Obama surely could have.
