I know a President can't stay as President for more than two terms but can he run again after his successor?
I would like to see Bill Clinton back in as the number one man. But can he run again now? Will he have to be almost President through Hillary?

Sorry epitome of naiveté. Your man Bill will have to rely on Hillary to get him back into the White House. I can't believe you are still a serious Clinton lover after everything that has been revealed since he left office. I guess some people never do learn. Or are uneducable. Or refuse to accept change / reality... More

It is limited to two elected terms. The only exception is if a vice-president fills out his predecessor's term - he can still be elected to two terms, but Clinton, having served two elected terms is not eligible to run again.

He's toast after two terms. If a president could serve more than two terms you can bet Clinton (the electable one) would have run in '04.

Good question. Our former governor served four terms that way. Two in the 70s, two in the 90s. I don't know if it's prohibited at the federal level. Interesting scenario!

No, darn it, remember the good old days of Clinton. Repuglicans sure are stupid, to discredit what was probably the most effective president in over 40 years. But unfortunitely for the U.S. he can only serve two terms, lifetime.

But if the President dies, the line of succession jumps over him

No one who has served two full terms (8 years) can serve a third. Also if a president dies or resigns or is removed, the vice president becomes president. If he does that with less than 2 years left in the former presidents term, then the new president can serve two more terms. If it is more than 2 years then the... More

NO they cannot run again after they have had two terms. There is no way in Hell would I want that Ba$tard back in office. He is certainly not as bad as that witch he is married to, but I had enough of his crap for one lifetime.

No. The Constitution article XXII states, "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the...
