I'd like to eliminate term limits as they currently exist; instead, each term spent in office could count as 50 negative votes (one per state) in the Electoral College. This would avoid lame-duck status, at least until the nominating conventions. Looking back only as far as the Civil War, the only elections that this rule would have changed would be those of 2004 (Bush v. Kerry) and 1916 (Wilson v. Hughes).
