      Warner, Lugar and Graham roll over at every opportunity.  Voinovich almost always does.  Collins is a party hack on just about everything other than choice and gay issues.  Only Snowe and Warner would have seriously considered it.

        ...SPECTER, Lugar and Graham, not Warner.

          I will give my father-in-law, a Wolverine, the credit. The House still starts the impeachment. There is always tension between the two sides of the Capitol. I am just a peoples, but Specter is a different animal the first four years of his term, like Bayh is also.

          How did I miss all these hearings into impeachable offense Conyers had? Are we talking about the basement meetings? I remember thinking that the articles that Kucinich laid in his resolutions later were not the correct ones. Congress has given up its power to declare war over and over, so that reason never held water for me. It was Richard Bruce's reach to shift the balance or power on Penn. Ave. that I found the most offensive. The smug "I don't have to show you no stinking badges" attitude about how he executed the duties as the barnacle of the Constitution that spoils my week. It starts with Constitution Day, includes Talk Like a Pirate Day, and five family birthdays, including mine.

          I will still argue that the House had its own obligation, its first step, not pre-conditioned by a Ouija board reading of the second step. If members had more respect for the fact that they are Article I, first for a reason, maybe all us little people would have more respect for them. Worrying about re-election, when they all have other marketable skills, over the meaning of the oath they took, leaves us types that are just county delegates to the state conventions shaking our heads. No organized party indeed.
