    I'd love to hear Democratic leaders saying things like:

    "I completely agree with what Rep. Hastert said. He said 'Simply put, the President in our representative democracy is not a sovereign who is above the law. The President's inability to abide by the law, the Constitution and my conscience have all led me to the solemn conclusion that impeachment articles must be passed.' I couldn't agree more."

    By using the words of Republicans like this, we can make it sound like there is bipartisan concern about the President's behavior and bipartisan support for impeachment. That will force those Republicans to be used like that or to go on record explaining why it's okay for Bush to lie, cheat, steal and subvert the Constitition that he swore an oath to God to defend, but wasn't okay for Clinton to lie to spare his family some embarrassment.

    More, more, more of this research!!!

    (Can you find anything my Congressman (Jim Gerlach, R., PA-06) might have said like this? He wasn't a Congressman at the time, but still might have made similar statements. I'd love to get any such info you might find to Lois Murphy's campaign.)
