Grover Cleveland is the only US president to serve two non-consecutive (or two interrupted) terms of office.

The governor heads the executive branch of state government. The governor of Virginia is Bob McDonnell. He was elected in 2010 and will serve one term until January 2014. Virginia governors may not hold consecutive terms.

There is no overall maximum number of terms that someone can be President of the USA, but there is a limit of two consecutive terms. It is possible that someone could serve two terms, sit out a term, then serve two more terms.

The US President can serve a maximum two full terms. One term is four years. A president who finishes another president's term which has less than two years to go, can still serve two more full terms. Therefore, in theory, it is possible to serve for 10 years in this special case.
