Bill would repeal term limits for president.
The push is on in Congress to repeal term limits for the presidency, the eighth such attempt by New York Democrat Jose Serrano.
H.J. Res. 17 now goes to the House Judiciary Committee.
The idea though, has support from people like President Bill Clinton.
"You couldn't apply it to anyone who has already served," Clinton told MSNBC last fall. "But going forward, I personally believe that should be the rule."
"People are living longer, they are developing greater capacity," Clinton said.
But GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak calls it highly unlikely, given the Republican majority and other steps needed to make it happen.
"It takes a higher threshold to pass it in Congress, and then it has to be ratified by three-fourths of the states," Mackowiak tells KTRH News. "The process in itself could take one to two years."
He adds that 12 years is a long time in the White House.
"The president would have the same people around, they'd be getting the same advice," he says. "The best and brightest they could pull from for their cabinet would be getting stale as well."
Mackowiak says given the stress of the presidency, he doesn't know why anyone would want to serve more than two terms.
