Does China now have a president for life? China's leader Xi Jinping could stay in power indefinitely following the ruling Communist Party's proposal to scrap term limits. The country saw it coming, especially after the president refrained from designating an heir at last fall's Communist Party Congress, which cemented his stature as China's most powerful ruler since Mao. Is China now heading for one-man rule and a new cult of personality?
