I have absolutely no business jumping into this discussion, but it keeps 
hammering on a topic that interests me in other venues:  "term limits".

I am opposed to them, assuming that the election process is open and 
honest and the voters have an opportunity to be informed.  (And if it is 
not, THAT is what needs to be fixed.)

It is my opinion that every discussion of the "need" for term limits 
involves a person or group of people who have these important 
characteristics:

They propose and vote in favor of legislation or do something else the 
term-limiters don't like.

Their constituency DOES like what they do and signal that by re-electing 
them.

State Senator Ernie Chambers here in Nebraska should be the text-book 
example of the evils of term limits.
