Kelly Shackelford on Federalist No. 72 and the Office of the Executive

Kelly Shackelford writing at Constituting America: “Today, very little debate exists over the Twenty-second Amendment and executive term limits, though various members of Congress occasionally propose legislation to repeal the Amendment. Even now, two hundred years after President Washington stepped down after his second term, Americans generally accept the two-term limit as an adequate amount of time for a President to serve.”
