Best Answer

Grover Cleveland was defeated in his bid for re-election in 1888 but ran again and won in 1892. He was the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms.

Martin Van Buren came close to getting the Democratic nomination in 1844 after losing his re-election bid in 1840. In 1848 he ran on the third party, Free-Soil ticket and probably tipped the election to the Whig Zachary Taylor by taking away Democratic from Lewis Cass votes in New York.

What is the maximum amount of terms a president may now run?

This assumes you mean President of the United States; if you meant something else, ask again and be more specific. Technically there's no limit on the number of times you can run for President; the limitation is on how long you can actually be President. In order to be eligible to be elected President, you may not have previously served more than one and one-half terms in that office. So, it's possible for someone to be elected vice-president, become president one day past the halfway point and serve out the remainder of the term as president (just under 1/2 term), then be elected twice more for two full terms, a total of 1 day less than 2.5 terms (10 years). If a vice-president becomes president at exactly the halfway mark of the term or earlier, it counts as a full term, so he can only run for president one more time after that (unless he's not elected ... it's possible to ascend to the presidency, serve out more than half a term, and then be defeated in one or more elections until finally elected again, after which you would no longer be eligible to run again).
