LIfetime terms for U.S. presidents

Would you be all right with a president for life? Not necessarily President Donald Trump, but the idea in general. President Trump joked about it when talking about the People's Republic of China, which now has a president for life.

Almost 3,000 lawmakers voted to change their constitution and only two said "no." Their  64-year-old president is considered the most powerful Chinese leader in decades. This is a huge change, considering term limits were put into the Chinese constitution to prevent a repeat of the bloody Mao Tse-Tung era in the late 1960s and 1970s.

In the U.S., a president can only serve two terms or a total of eight years. But say we could change that, who would you want in the Oval Office for life?
