U.S. President Barack Obama meets U.S. Senate Democrats including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) (R) in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, October 12, 2013. The White House urged Congress on Saturday to
A new Huffington Post/YouGov poll conducted July 9-11 reveals:
Sixty-eight percent of Republicans said beginning the impeachment process would be justified, while only 8 percent of Democrats said the same. Independents were divided, 37 percent to 37 percent, while 26 percent said they weren't sure.
Republican voters want impeachment? Who could have possibly guessed? Not surprisingly, high-profile Senate candidates aren't singing the same song, primarily because they don't want to sound crazy, but the GOP base shouldn't freak out: It's the House that decides whether or not to impeach, and with House Speaker John Boehner already suing President Obama and the GOP in control of the lower chamber, the pro-impeachment crowd has the deck stacked in its favor—at least once the election is over.

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.
