Maybe I missed something in the post-election flurry, but in the wake of the recent Democratic victories, why did Nancy Pelosi take such pains to assure everyone that “impeachment is not on the table”? Is she already looking to run for president in 2008 and doesn’t want to offend people?
Personally I’d love to see an impeachment. Not so much for the possibility of seeing Bush removed from office (although I wouldn’t mind that at all) but in order to have a real investigation into the lies, deceptions and abuses of power by the Bush administration during the last six years. And I want that information presented in the mass media, so that people who get their news from the television news will hear about what the readers of Paul Krugman and Frank Rich already know. And I want the other people involved to be so exposed and discredited that they can never work in government again.
