On the "Pagliuca: Politicians Care About Sound Bites, Not Economy" highlight, I don't believe that term limits will result in more far-sighted politicians. If anything, I think it will result in politicians who squeeze the juice out of their terms even harder - more porkbarrel, more dirty lobbying. Rather I think the key is to make the politician's job less appealing. Take away the pension benefits, take away the opportunity to be bought by special interest groups, and all the other glitz, and what you'll be left with is a job that you would only take to do the right thing.
