    First, there is nothing wrong with caution when pursuing an investigation, as the full weight of evidence is needed to counter and crush the administration's propaganda machine. Also, the only real tool that brings accountability for the administration's crimes is impeachment, and that is strictly the property of Conyers (Judiciary Committee chairman), not Waxman. Then even if we don't impeach (though then we will miss a great opportunity to set a precedent regarding the consequences of presidential criminality), Bush's term is coming to a close, and a Democratic president is heavily favored to win the next election. And this election, your point #3 holds to an even greater extent than 2006. The public is thoroughly disgusted with the Republicans' lockstep support of the war and their obstructionism of every important domestic agenda, so much so that even given Congress's low approval ratings, Democrats are solidly beating Republicans in every generic poll, and every Democratic top tier candidate is beating every Republican top tier candidate in the presidential polls.

    So I would not declare Waxman's failure or our impending doom so prematurely.
