Term Limits and the Will of the Voters

DENVER—I’m on the floor of Invesco Field right now, where Barack Obama is giving his speech tonight, hanging with the New York delegation and talking about (what else?) term limits.

C. Virginia Fields, former Manhattan borough president told me, "I don’t support any legislation akin to that change."

She said that in light of disputed election results in recent presidential elections in Florida and Ohio, "Democrats can’t afford any move that is perceived as overruling the will of the voters."

Fields said she does support putting the issue on the ballot for voters because term limits have not worked well in New York City.
