This depends on the country/organization. See related questions.United States:A US President may be elected to only two 4-year terms of office, under the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution. He may also serve up to 2 years of the term of the preceding President, through succession, for a total of ten years in office, However, if he serves more than 2 years of a preceding President's term, he can only be elected to one more full term. (The unlikely possibility that a Vice President could succeed to terms of more than one President is not addressed.)Bolivia:A president may only be elected for a single non-renewable 5 year term.Ecuador:As of the 2008 Constitutional Change, A president may be elected to at most two - 4 year terms.2 terms for a total of 8 years ( each term is 4 years).

Who is Hillary Clinton?

* Born: 26 October 1947� - * Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois� - * Best Known As: The former First Lady who ran for president - Name at birth: Hillary Diane Rodham Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000. She is also the wife of former President Bill Clinton, making her the first American First Lady ever elected to national office. After graduating from Wellesley College in 1969, Hillary Rodham went to Yale Law School, where she met Clinton, a fellow student. She served as a staff attorney for the Children's Defense Fund and was also on the congressional Impeachment Inquiry staff in 1974, at the tail end of Watergate scandal. Hillary married Bill Clinton and left Washington for Arkansas in 1975. She raised their daughter and practiced law during Clinton's 12 years as the state's governor. Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992 and Hillary became a somewhat controversial First Lady, weathering criticism about everything from her hairstyles to her involvement in public policy to her role in a questionable Arkansas land deal (the so-called Whitewater affair). She also endured her husband's much-publicized affair with intern Monica Lewinsky and supported him during the subsequent impeachment hearings. In 2000 the Clintons took residency in New York and Hillary was elected to the U.S. Senate, in the same year that Bush was elected to succeed her husband. She was re-elected to a second term in 2006. She ran for the Democratic nomination for president in 2008, finally conceding to fellow senator Obama after a lengthy campaign In 2003 Clinton published a 562-page memoir, Living History, detailing her eight years in the White House... Her 1996 book It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us was a best-seller, though the phrase "It takes a village to raise a child" was frequently lampooned by her opponents. \ In 2009, President Obama chose her to be the Secretary of State. ------To protect this answer from vandalism it has been locked.

Can Bill Clinton legally run for Vice President in 2012?

No. The VP candidate must be eligible to serve as President and Bill Clinton has already served two terms and is therefore not an acceptable candidate.Actually, it's not that simple. Bill Clinton is eligible to serve as President according to Article II of the Constitution, although he is ineligible to be elected to another term due to the 22nd Amendment.Therefore, he is actually eligible to run as a Vie-Presidential candidate, and he is certainly eligible to succeed the Presidency.Granted, it would be hotly contested, and many experts in Constitutional law disagree on this point, but I think they could actually squeak by.
