    Clinton to continue to triangulate and compromise until reality slaps him in the face.  Newt impeached Bill and, I hate to tell Obama, but the GOP has Newt's game plan as a template and they are looking for an excuse to begin impeachment proceedings.  Benghazi was almost the trigger for such a proceeding but the GOP figured they could not generate enough public outrage to pull it off.  however, they are still circling and waiting

    •  Clinton committed perjury (1+ / 0-)

      They had some grounds to go after Clinton even if it was not even job related. They can't impeach Obama unless he commits a Nixon like crime, Being black isn't enough.
      Anyway it is really almost impossible to convict someone  unless you can show a serious criminal act because you would have to get 67 votes in the senate to convict.
      Unless a presidents own party want him out(like republicans did with Nixon) throwing someone out of office is close to impossible.

      •  point taken but Bill handed GOP impeachment (0+ / 0-)

        on a silver platter.  Point is GOP can still file impeachment for anything they wish and then tie up everything for the remainder of Obama's term
