4-this is found in article 2, section 1, clause 1: the executive power shall be vested in a president of the united states of america. he shall hold his office during the term of four years ............. based upon amendment twenty-two of the constitution, no person can be elected to the office of president more than twice or serve more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected president. therefore, the total length of time that any person could serve as president is ten years. makes you wonder if fdr was so revered why did they rush out and amend the constitution, preventing a person to serve as president longer than 10 years. i would think the popular sentiment among presidents finishing their second term would be, who am i to serve as president longer than george washington?
