Clinton: Presidents Should Be Able To Serve A Third Term

Former President Bill Clinton tells MSNBC's "Morning Joe" he thinks presidents should be able to serve more than two terms. Transcript:

JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: "So we talked a couple years ago and I asked you a question at the end about whether guys like you should be able to run again because I will guarantee you, we will get back to the office and we will be flooded with e-mails and responses on twitter, people will say 'Why can't this guy run for president in 2012?' And of course you can't because Republicans didn't want there to be another FDR back in the 1940s. But shouldn't it though, shouldn't a president be able to take two terms, take some time off and then run again? Shouldn't Americans have that choice?"

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: "Yes, I do. I believe that should be the rule. And I think as a practical matter, you couldn't apply to anyone whose already served. But if going forward, I personally believe that should be the rule."
