    Getting back to Monica Lewinsky and the impeachment of President Clinton, IMO the entire plan of the people orchestrating it was: to impeach a President for such a minor offense (one that didn't meet the definition of high crimes and misdemeanors) was to prevent any legitimate attempt to impeach any president (read Republican).

    More importantly, the plan was to get Democrats to agree NOT to extend the INDEPENDENT PROSECUTOR statute, which would guarantee No oversight or investigations of anyone in the Bush Administration.

    Nearly as important was the GOP talking point about criminalizing politics which is IOKIYARism at its best. Considering the bogus investigations of Democrats by DoJ: Torricelli, Siegelman, etc. it was meant to prevent the Democrats from doing the same.
