Ever since the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution was ratified on February 27, 1951, no president can serve more than two (2) terms. Since that ratification, only three (3) presidents have served two full terms: Eisenhower, Reagan and Clinton. George W. Bush will become the fourth president to have served two full terms upon completion of this current term which runs through January 20, 2009.

The only president elected to serve more than two terms was Roosevelt.

How many years can somebody be president in the US?

Normally, an individual can be president for two terms, which would be 8 years. But when a president takes office following the incapacitation of the previous president, and if the new president serves less than half of the previous president's term, then the new president can still have two terms of her/his own, bringing the longest possible current tenure to 10 years minus a day. No president has had a time in office that long under these conditions. FDR had a very long tenure in office because during his time there were no limits to the number of terms a president could serve. After his death the limits were changed by way of a Constitutional Amendment.
