It's perhaps worth mentioning that Governor David Paterson also owes his current position to nepotism (as well as his predecessor's sexual misadventures).

This situation is a good argument for term limits.

Disturbing as it may be, it isn't exactly a trend if its a practice "that dates all the way back to the Founding Fathers" is it?

For term limits to have a chance to work, they must be applied across all states. Otherwise it creates an imbalance.

I wonder if Beau Biden would have accepted his dad's Senate seat if he hadn't been committed to going to Iraq.

Is this a trend toward dynasty politics, or simply keeping with an old American tradition? - I am genuinely curious and not trying to be snarky.

Mike Luckovich weighs in.
