      then again, people started to develop a case for impeachment based on war crimes, but nancy took impeachment off of the table and the decent people were marginalized.  a while thereafter barack obama was elected and he looked forward and saw that it was in his interest not to look back.  since he's been in office, much of that segment of the public that used to be concerned about these things seems to have lost its interest in the issue.  inertia is a bitch of a force.
