"The constitution of the Confederate States of America provided for a one-term president who served for six years. Would there be merit in amending the Constitution to provide for something like this, and why or why not?"
I think it would a bad idea. Would we want to be stuck with Obama for four more years, instead of just two? If a President governs well for four years, then he can be re-elected. Whereas if he is a bad president, and in for six years, he has more time to do more damage before he is done.

I think I’d have to agree with your assessment on that one. Six years is too long to be stuck with a inexperienced, incompetent, POS.
