No two term limit would also be intersting in 1976, when the Republicans again nominate Richard Nixon instead of the sitting president Gerald Ford.
After Watergate!!! What are you smoking!

But, and this would make a fun little timeline, what if Bush left office, things go about the same, maybe a little worse in the economy. Maybe Libya fails. BUSH CHALLENGES OBAMA. HILARITY ENSUES.

But with no Watergate, a Nixon third term bid in 76 definitely seems possible - his 72 results combined with approval ratings at around 70% in February of 1973, a few months before sh**t really hit the fan with Watergate
