I support term limits. I don't think any politician should serve a lifetime in public office. Two terms is plenty. Its not like these talentless hacks couldn't be replaced by people who have something new to contribute. I would like congressional term limits. Two terms for senators and six terms for House members. Poster Boy #1 for term limits is Ted Kennedy. He's served in the Senate since I was born. Poster Boy #2 is Trent Lott who thinks his 35 years of service makes him better than his constituents. Term limits would be the best reform that could ever happen to Congress.

I agree. These individuals are turning being a Senator/Congressman into a lifelong career. Two terms max in the Senate, four in the House, and no more than 15 years total.

Our Founding Fathers never would have imagined a professional politician. Most of them were farmers, store owners, and such, so that is was a real sacrifice for them to attend congress. Now we are infested with a entire collection of political fleas, who hide is the seams, of society, and like to do their dirty work in the back offices, and night spots. Nothing would be better for us than to get rid of these professional trough feeders, such and Robert Byrd (sp) or Ted Kennedy, look at the ones like Trent Lott, and Old What’s his name ( used to be married to Liz Taylor).They do not add a thing to the running of our Country. Two term and out. We might lose a few good men but we would get rid a lot of bad ones.
