Crowley to Novak on a third Clinton term: "You and I would have an awful lot of fun"March 15, 2005 11:20 AM EST ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
From an exchange between CNN host Robert Novak and CNN senior political correspondent Candy Crowley on the March 14 edition of CNN's Inside Politics:
NOVAK: The House minority whip, House Democratic whip, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, every year introduces a constitutional amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which puts a two-term limit on presidents. Every year he gets the revered Republican congressman, Henry Hyde of Illinois, to be a co-sponsor because Henry hates all kinds of term limits.
This year, however, Hyde is not on as a co-sponsor. And the word around is that's because the way it's worded this year would permit Bill Clinton to come back after and run again for a third term. And that's something no Republican, including Henry Hyde, wants.
CROWLEY: I don't know. You and I would have an awful lot of fun, though, I think.
