Is four years too little for a President to really make an effective impression on the country, or would it better to increase the time span? Just something I was wondering when reading about term limits and whether or not there should be any.

So then David Rice Atchison was the perfect president.

Umm...by the end of four years, one would have a good impression on how the President is like. For example, by the end of Obama's first term, all we know about him is he has increased the rate of inflation, has incredibly eloquent [but superficial] speeches, and has many policies that my peers and superiors do not agree with.

But, I guess not. Americans elected George Bush Jr. for another couple of four years, and look where that got us.

Especially when he died after giving his speech during a rainy day. William Henry Harrison, if I am correct, had barely even served his office before that fateful day.

One only knows how America would be like if he were president for a few more years.

Well, Atchison did claim "In an interview with the St. Louis Globe-Democrat...that he slept through most of the day of his alleged presidency: "There had been three or four busy nights finishing up the work of the Senate, and I slept most of that Sunday." I guess that one day where he was the Acting President was very peaceful for Mr. Atchison.[1]
