Term limits are one of those things that always sound better in theory than it turns out being in practice. You end up sweeping out the good legislators with the bad, and the new guys are usually not any better, plus they don't know what in the hell they're doing. By the time they learn the ropes, they're out. Then they usually just bounce around from office to office anyway, running for whatever they think they have a chance to win. I actually don't mind a divided government, it keeps either party from going too far. Until recently, reasonable things could get passed, now one party will block things they are in favor of just because the other party wants it. I think we need to make some changes to the filibuster rules.
