4 years I believe.  A president can only do 2 back-to-back terms though.  So 8 years max if they win their second election, then they MUST take 4 years off before they can stand again.

Ben: ...So 8 years max if they win their second election, then they MUST take 4 years off before they can stand again.

I think you will find that it's 8 years max for life i.e. once 2 x 4 year terms have been served, that person cannot be president again.

In George W.'s case, it's just as well this policy is in place I think...

Also each state votes a specific number of representatives who actually make the vote for a particular presidential candidate on their behalf. Oddly enough there is no requirement for a particular representative to vote in the way they said they would however and there has been a few instances where they have changed their mind and voted differently.
