I knew one of the founders of the US Term Limits group (Cleta Mitchell, I believe her name was, from Arkansas). The group was well-intentioned, if a little “overly passionate” perhaps. I know that in parallel with that Arkansas amendment they also were trying to rally support nationwide for a regular Constitutional amendment, which would of course have to get many more states onboard to be implemented. Hasn’t been as much momentum behind that effort since the early ’90s, be interesting to see whether the current economic climate and low approval ratings for Congress will spark any revival in the term-limits movement.
I’m a huge fan of the Constitution, and of better public awareness of it – so I like your Trivia posting idea! Thanks – lewis
