/at least I think it is

I thought the joke was that he's not up for re-election at all: if you've been elected President twice, you cannot be elected President again. You can't take any office that would put you in the line of succession for the Presidency either.

If you serve more than half of another President's term (because your predecessor died in office, for example), then you can only be elected President once instead of twice, but I'm not sure this has come up since they made that rule.
