OK, I am reposting the poll with 3 new options.
Thanks for the constructive Criticism.
You might try adding something serious. Say, the Kennedy-McNamara evasion of statutory requirements that Congress be kept informed of military activities that are underway or contemplated.
I think the comparison between only Clinton and Bush is very relevant. After Watergate our country has been wary. But since Clinton’s acquittal, there has been a great deal of debate on what should be considered an impeachable offense, use of independent council, etc., for example:
The Quest for a Transcendent Foundation of "The Law" in the Discourse of Impeachment
Cultural Critique, No. 43, The Politics of Impeachment (Autumn, 1999)
The Clinton 2000 Effect in Perspective: The Impact of Retiring Presidents on Their Parties' Chances of Retaining the White House
Journal article by Martin P. Wattenberg; Presidential Studies Quarterly, Vol. 33, 2003
As I said before, Bush should be thankful to Clinton. Because if Watergate was still the taste in our mouths rather than the Clinton fishing expeditions, there would be far less tolerance toward Bush now.
BINGO. That hits the nail on the head.
Or Roosevelt and packing the USSC. Keep a few real scares in the poll just to keep things in perspective.
I'm not so sure: I think the Democrats are out for revenge and if they found anything they could hang their hat on, they'd push for impeachment in a second.
The majority consensus it that Bush has broken the law. It is the opposing party’s job to be the opposing party in a democracy (and they best be doing their job if they want to be reelected in 2006). Since all branches of government are Republican controlled, if they push for impeachment it's more like they could be hanging themselves out to dry.
Which is why there is no justice in the real world.
SOS, extremely on point. Russ's surmise is a one legged table; it doesn't have foundation with respect to a republican controlled federal government.
Separate names with a comma.
