If they have all the time they want, they many not finish the things they had a responsibility to finish. If we tell them they run multiple terms, we may loose out on some talent and expertise. If we tell them they can't campaign at all, but may be eligible for multiple terms, they may not be able to defend themselves against rivals or sell us on strategies for signficant developing issues. Do you think to limit their campaign time would be enough to create a balance?

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
