Should the spouses of former presidents be banned from running for president?
I am in the midst of an argument about this on another site.
Their view is that, if a president has already served his two term limit, his spouse should be banned for running from president because the former president might influence his spouse and thus extend his reign past the legal limits from “behind the scene.”
My view is that until we have evidence of this taking place, we shouldn’t go imposing any new eligibility clauses on presidential hopefuls.
What’s your view?
