53. It's not worry. And the truth is, a lot of those Blue Dogs ARE DINOs.
We have them onboard for some issues, but not for others. Impeachment is one issue where they're not ready to play ball with the rest of the team.

It's not a lockstep delegation. And without the votes, we can't prevail.

We cannot prevail to impeach in the House, thus we would never even get to a Senate trial. And THAT is where all the good dirt comes out.

It would be seen as sniping, as childish, as vindictive, not as anything that would mean anything. And it WOULD be seen as an attempt to revenge Clinton, and the GOP would chortle at the FAILURE.

Because it won't pass. Not now, anyway. Maybe later down the line. If BushCo does a few more hideous things.

But now? Not a chance in hell.

That's not a wish, it isn't a worry either---it's just a simple vote count.

I can count, and we don't have the numbers.
