The 22nd Amendment to the United States Constitution provides for a two-term limit for Presidents.

This Amendment was adopted in 1951 in response to public reaction after Franklin Delano Roosevelt's record four terms as President. FDR's inability to escape from the United States Cabinet bored the American public and provided poor odds for the bookmakers who traditionally took bets on presidental succession.

Similarly, in response to public reaction, there is movement afoot for an amendment to the 22nd Amendment to provide for a minimum I.Q. requirement for election to the office of President. An I.Q. of at least room temperature is the standard most often supported. Still, a disagreement exists between measuring temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius. If measured in Fahrenheit, there is doubt that any citizen could reach the minimum requirement.
