Pelosi needs to step up

If she were not in the House--and not Speaker of the House--Nancy Pelosi says she "would probably advocate" impeaching President Bush. Probably?

"The question of impeachment is something that would divide the country," Pelosi said I don't know what our success can be on impeaching the president."

Divide the Country Ms. Pelosi - how much more divided could we be? Personally, I think it is an outrage that Bush and Cheney are still in office.

Democratic Party leaders do not have the votes to pass an impeachment resolution. And Democrats could be judged harshly for partisan gridlock, just as the American people turned on Congressional Republicans in the 90s for pursuing the impeachment of President Clinton.

The Clinton Impeachment effort was nothing more than Rove trying to settle old scores in my opinion. Using this as an example in this case is just a lousy excuse for not considering Impeacment.

I wonder how Democrats will be judged for not pursuing Impeachment of Bush and Cheney for the following reasons:

Bush lied to Congress and the American public about the reasons for invading Iraq.
Bush conducted illegal wiretaps of American citizens.
Bush violated the Geneva Convention by torturing prisoners of war.
Bush violated International Law by invading a sovereign country for illegal purposes.
Bush held prisoners without formal charges and without legal representation. [CNN]
