Ned links to an interesting NYT poll of New York City Council members on extending mayoral term limits:

In the survey, The Times interviewed 38 of the Council’s 51 members, most of whom spoke on the record. Twenty-seven of them said they could support extending term limits, even though city residents have voted twice, in 1993 and 1996, for the existing laws. Eight members opposed altering the rules, three said they remained undecided and the 13 others could not be reached this week.

Well, damn. 27’s a majority, right there. As Ned says, it’s harder than it looks from this, but still, what are they waiting for?
