Daily Kos: Impeachment On the Edge of the Table

    The Fox News report is hilarious! Why didn’t they just title it “Dennis Kucinich Is a Loser, Again!”

    It’s hard to take anything seriously on the same day my radio wakes me up with NPR news calling the death of the forth amendment a “victory for the president”, but with Dennis Kucinich out there working for us, maybe there’s a chance.

    This seems like grandstanding by Pelosi. At this point in the presidency I doubt that anybody would take the impeachment proceedings seriously and even if they did, Bush would almost certainly be acquitted by the Senate like Clinton was since it requires a 2/3 majority to convict in impeachment hearings. Even if Bush were convicted we would simply have a lame duck president until January – which sounds like our current situation – except that the lame duck could be “President Pelosi”, our first female President (assuming Cheney is impeached and convicted as well – which seems even more likely than a Bush conviction).

    David:

    What do you think? Should we just let the constitution ride and not bother?
