    ...was their entire reason for impeaching Clinton. This is not a short-term plan. Clinton's impeachment was designed to do exactly what it is doing today: protect the president and forfeit impeachment as a remedy.

    I think the Democrats should call their bluff. But if we can survive the next year and a half, and an impeachment hearing would weaken our chances for 2008, then maybe the Democrats are taking the right course. My fear is that the Bushies will succeed in blowing up the world before the 1-1/2 years is over.

      But I'm annoyed that a diary here is citing the Washington Times - aka the Moonie Times - without even the slightest bit of irony or acknowledgement of what that paper's mission is.  That paper is not an unbiased party in this whole thing.  They are a cult paper dedicated to the Bush Administration.  Relying on any story about Democrats from the Moonie Times to start a discussion is pretty much a waste of everyone's time.

        Murtha, Nadler, Watson, Feingold, Kerry and Conyers asking for their opinion on impeachment using quotations from their responses.  

        If it was a lot of the papers own commentary than you could be suspicious of a biased spin, but when I see quotations I take that as what the person actually said.

          to the Washington Times about a strategy for impeachment would be Joe Lieberman.  Do you understand what I am saying?  They are not going to tell the Moonies that they are planning for impeachment even if they are.  The only time you will hear anyone serious on our side talk publicly about impeaching this president or any of the people in this cabal will be when they are ready to do it.  It won't happen before.  So keep pushing them on it and keep telling them the reasons you want it, and in the meantime stop reading right wing rags and getting yourself all upset.

          The Washington Times is about as close to an "enemy" paper as you can get.  Taking any quotation that they offer at face value is - well let's just say you'd do better reading the Weekly World News for accuracy; and anyone in our party who would breathe a word about plans for anything this big to that cult would only be trying to undermine the effort.
