NO! DC hasn't a clue to what the average American has to do to keep a family, job, home, etc. I think something happens after that winners party in the local election, they get a Hollywood Head and then they go and live in that rarefied air in DC. I believe in term limits because I do not think that politics should be a career. They should have a term to serve their State, County, whatever, and go back and get a job. I don't think that they should have a LIFETIME retirement check for serving only ONE term! Come on, who works for four years and then gets paid until the day they die? I can understand a President having that benefit because what other job can you possibly do after that, Wal-Mart? Heck, I think most of the DC crowd now would fail a Wal-Mart test!
