One Term Presidential Limit

As with many other precedents, George Washington set the custom of serving no more than 2 terms as president. Up until FDR, all of his successors adhered to this tradition. After FDR, the 22nd Amendment was passed by congress to enshrine a two-term limit into the Constitution. But, even as far back as 1812, there were voices arguing for a one-term limit.

Absolutely. One six year term as in the Confederate Constitution.

I concur with the one-term thought as this would stop the ever present campaigning for the next term as we have now.

As is now, after serving in that office for the legal [Read; Constitutionally] amount of time the individual cannot seek that office again but I would further that by adding that after reaching the pinnacle of U.S. politics that they cannot run for any public office to and including dog-catcher ever again.
