More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      Bruce Fein, one of the most intelligent men on the planet, has worked on other impeachments and he knows the subject inside and out, backward and forward.  I only saw him use notes once on Friday and that was when he glanced at some when he made his opening statements.  I think he must have either a photographic memory or has read/studied so much on the topic of impeachment that he has virtually everything memorized.  He's a brilliant extemporaneous speaker.

      Elizabeth Holtzman also had wonderfully informative things to say.

      Vince Bugliosi pointing out what he could and could not say was telling.  Not being able to call a lie a lie, among other things, is just wrong.  No wonder we get pablum from Lamestream Media that only says they "mislead" us.

      FYI, the Wexler tape above had nothing whatsoever to do with the HJC hearing on Friday; Wexler, as an HJC member, was at the hearing on Friday and asked questions, but the video is from before when he was gathering signatures for yet another impeachment petition and was presented on the floor of the House where the names were put into the House record.  The gathering of signatures did not lead to the Friday hearing; the HJC hearing came about because of Dennis Kucinich's last two impeachment resolutions (and, I suspect, because Conyers is getting pressure from veterans' groups and other impeachment advocates).

    With the committee being the puppets.

    It was all a scam for the Dems to be able to say that they actually did something about the greatest catastrophe to happen to the fabric of our constitution since its inception.

    And god bless Cindy Sheehan.  I have said it once before and I will say it again.  It must be nice to be well known enough that the committee chairman ejects you from a judiciary committee meeting by name!

            When given a chance to testify about war criminals before a body that has the power to do something about them, all you can do is hope for the best.

            There is always a small chance that you can shame them, or make them realize, that they must take responsibility.

            You take what you can get, and to date this is all we have been able to get.
