It's not as though there is much enticement to stick around. Presidents who win re-election have generally found, wrote John Fortier and Norman Ornstein in their 2007 book, "Second-Term Blues," that "their second terms did not measure up to their first."

:eek:

To scary to consider.

Reagan was probably the only president of the last 50 years to have a better 2nd term than 1st.

WHAT??? I'd certainly say that Clinton's 2nd term was better than his first. If you ignore the sex nonsense, it was a very successful term.

I guess I was factoring in the getting impeached thing. :thumb:

Barry would have a better 2nd term if re-elected do to the fact it is practically impossible to have a worse term than the 1st one~

That's a tough concept for a Chiefs fan to put much stock in today.
