    I'm sorry, I keep going back and forth in my head on this one. Yes, we should impeach if for no other reason than to set precedent (and impeach for a real offense of the Constitution, not just headline grabbing).

    But, this upcoming presidential election is so important I hesitate. I don't want a push for impeachment to alienate the public and therefore lead to any Dem losses.

    That being said, I think the Dems are stupid to not engage the administration more and show more backbone, especially since given Congress's approval #'s ya'd think they wouldn't have anything to lose. So in that sense impeachment also makes sense.

    I'm still conflicted. Just letting you know where I'm at. But a great diary that deserves a tip and a rec.

      hates these... well, you're a granny so I won't use that word.

      They don't poll it very often, but the last poll showed 53% of Americans were ready to impeach Cheney that day, with 48% ready to go on Bush, the prior poll had something near 60% impeaching Bush if he lied us into war...

      The Democrats could have no better thing going for them in '08 than every day's news featuring a new criminal revelation (new to the mainstream press at least) every day.

      And there will be.

      And let the Republican Senators fail to convict them, after everyone sees just how crooked they are.

      Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

    •  The election has nothing to do with impeachment (0+ / 0-)

      In fact, it might bring in the votes from people like us who are pissed off at what Pelosi and Reid are doing.

      Democrats are not happy with them.  Independents believe what the media says about Democrats.  Anyway, we must impeach Cheney at least.

      Did you see the letter to Nancy/Harry from 1,000 lawyers?
