  • Yes. 22nd amendment to the US constitution: "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once." Two elections total.
  • Only two full terms in a lifetime. If I recall correctly, a law was passed in the mid 1900's to limit it. However a person can technically have more than two terms if they take the office if the president leaves office, therefore taking office for a half term, and then being voted in two more times.
  • Yes. Nothing illegal in that. Only that there is a cap of two terms.
  • The 22nd Amendment chooses a different way of explaining the limit, which clears things up a bit: "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice" It places no limits on when those elections take place. The only president to have actually served two non-consecutive terms was Grover Cleveland, whose last term ended 54 years before the 22nd amendment was ratified.
