    Should politicians be required to to fullfill their term?

    Here in New York, Hillary Clintion is running for relection to the US Senate. However, when asked if she will run for President, she seems to become mute.

    Would you want a newely re-elected Senator to start campaigning for President. (the way things work, she would have to start on 2 Jan 07 for the 08 election cycle.

    Thoughts,

    Salty

    It might be a good idea (it would have kept G.W. out of the White House, perhaps) but running for another office has long been a standard practice. Such a restriction would have kept Harry Truman out of the White House, as well as Richard Nixon, Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson.


    A constitutional amendment would probably he required for enforcement.

    There is no slavery in America. Anyone can quit their job for any reason.
