It’s a rare occurrence to see the secretary of state, secretary of defense and chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff in one place at the same time.

That happened Wednesday when all three gathered before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to make a case for the U.S. to sign the Law of the Seas Treaty.

Andy Matarrese of the Medill News Service has details on how ratification of the treaty would impact national security.

Bill Clinton: why not three terms for a president?
Wonder where he got that idea? To be clear, Clinton is not proposing this as some sort of self-interested scheme to sweep back into the White House — he emphasized that it shouldn’t count for anybody who’s already served, and with a recurring history of heart issues and the Clinton Global Initiative to run, it seems unlikely a third Presidential effort would be in the best interests of his health or professional life. That said, his argument is simple and seems reasonable enough: that citizens should have the right to elect a president to a third term, but only after he’s taken a term off.
