This week’s reading from the text is about the Presidency. In this reading, you learned (and may, in fact have already known) that individual president’s are limited by the Constitution to two terms. This two-term limitation policy is also in place for governors (the state-version of the federal executive official) in almost all of the 50 states. The one exception to this is Virginia, where a governor is limited to a single term. Here is a relatively-recent article describing this policy: https://wamu.org/story/17/09/28/single-virginia-governors-commonwealth-cant-stand-re-election-change/
What do you think about Virginia’s policy for a one-term limit on a governor’s service? What are the costs and benefits of this policy? Should we (as a society) consider a similar policy for the President of the United States? Why or why not?
