Let's hope the White House doesn't take a page from Caracas

This was an interesting piece in the news earlier this week... From Christopher Toothaker of the Associated Press, we learn that Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez says he could govern until 2027.
President Hugo Chavez said Sunday he could continue governing until 2027 if voters do away with re-election limits because he needs more time in office to establish a socialist economic model in Venezuela.

He has previously said he could stay on as president until 2021 if his proposed constitutional reforms — which among other changes would eliminate presidential term limits, letting him run as many more times as he wants — are approved.
Let's hope there are no calls to do away with re-election limits here in the USA to finish the "War on Terror."
