The maximum time a president is allowed to spend in the white house should be reduced to one term. When an incumbent believes he must fight to remain in office (power), he will do things to try and sway the people towards him. The presidency should not be based on popularity (although that is the basis for the popular vote). On the other hand, if a president knows there is no chance for a re-election, he/she will put more time and energy into the real issues, and perhaps even collaborate with the next incoming president come time. It would be just one small step away from corruption.
