A listener went over to our Skribit and proposed this question as a potential solution:

Why not have term limits for every political post in the country?
Only one term.

Sanden Totten decided to look into the state of term limits in the U.S. to see why that may or may not be a good idea. (This interview was part of our latest In The Loop podcast)
