Lieberman Says Senators Need Term Limits

Retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) told WFSB-TV that it is time for sweeping changes in the way the United States chooses its leaders and said he supports the elimination of the electoral college and supports term limits for his colleagues in the Senate.

Said Lieberman: "My position on this has changed. Some say there are term limits for senators every six years and it is up to voters to decide. When I started here (24 years ago) I was 99th in seniority, and now I am 20th, so it does change, but needs to change more often... I think it would make the senate less partisan and healthier if it turned over more often."

He also said he was surprised there wasn't a movement after the 2000 election to eliminate the electoral college.
