The Twice and Future President Revisited: Of Three-Term Presidents and Constitutional End Runs

Professor Bruce G. Peabody reexamines his 1999 piece published with Volume 83 of the Minnesota Law Review, entitled “The Twice and Future President: Constitutional Interstices and the Twenty-Second Amendment.” Peabody’s 1999 article has generated a significant amount of conversation since the time of its publication and the argument is again renewed in light of commentary surrounding the topic of two-term Presidents and their ability to serve the country in the role of Vice President. This piece furthers the discussion by commenting on the importance of this debate and also tying it to the concept of “constitutional end runs.”
