    •  Mebbe we can impeach him first (none)

      I've figured out how to know what the Republicans are up to. Just listen to what they accuse the Democrats of doing. -- Me

      •  Agnew was impeachment repellent (none)
         and was almost certainly picked for VP as such. Once he was rolled up and replaced by Ford, Nixon began to sweat. Spiro (zero, no hero) resigns . As well he should have: he was gone in less than a year. Nixon (not a crook, so quit saying that) resigns

        Not going to happen though, even if we take the House and Senate in 2006, it would look like a coup and so poison the political well for decades, and probably spawn dozens of McVeighs besides. Democrats would simply demonstrate that "lame duck" when the opposite party controls Congress really means "steer". The President may still look like a bull, but he will not have the balls that allow him to mount and service the country in the way he has become accustomed to.

        •  Hmmmmm (none)
          I guess there was more truth than I thought to this joke from ca. 1990:

          Q: How do you sum up George Bush's life insurance policy in two words?

          A: President Quayle.

        •  The well is already poisoned. (none)
          Clinton's impeachment was the poison.

          In Bush's case, there were GENUINE high crimes and misdemeanors, with blood involved.

          I'm not looking to impeach for partisan reasons. I never wanted to impeach all the other Republican presidents I've hated.

          Bush needs to be impeached because he is a criminal.

    •  Jeffords is an independent.. (none)
      We would have a 50-49 majority which would cancel out Cheney as a tiebreaker.
