  •  Impeachement is simple political arithmatic (0+ / 0-)

    If your party holds a majority in the House and a 2/3 majority in the Senate ... you can impeach the President for any reason, or for no reason at all -- "misdemeanors" being, according to the Constitution whatever the House votes they are in each individual case.

    Conversely ... without that 2/3 majority in the Senate, YOU CAN'T.

    Bill Clinton made the mistake of marshaling arguments rather than counting votes.  He lost focus, and wasted time trying to placate the Implacable.  We got a lot of Bad BiPartisan(tm)  legislation during Bill's second term.
