Bill Clinton Would Like Presidential Term Limits Eliminated (VIDEO)

Bill Clinton was on 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on MSNBC) Thursday. The fact that Joe Scarborough, in his former life as a Congressman, voted to impeach Clinton, made things a bit awkward. But Scarborough made up for it with a bunch of flattering questions, like this one:

"Doesn't it make sense for the country to say OK, let a guy serve for eight years, then they can take a term or two off. But then if they have something to give back to America in terms of leadership, give them that opportunity."

"That's what I believe the rule should be," Clinton agreed. "With life expectancy being so long, and people being so alert into their 70s and sometimes their 80's, I think there's an argument for that."

To be fair, Clinton did follow that up by clarifying if we were to change the Constitution and allow a third, non-consecutive term, the rule change shouldn't apply to current term-limited presidents, like himself.

However, we think he was just saying that so the ever effusive Scarborough would disagree and tell everybody how great it would be if Clinton was allowed to be president again. (Which he didn't do.)
