President of the United States

Odds of Hanging On

For four years? Very good, unless you do something stupid and get impeached, or get awfully unlucky and get assassinated.

For eight years? Depends on what you do the first four.

For more than eight years? Not great, unless you're able to get a very sneaky new law passed while you're in office.
