109. Nixon didn't resign until he knew he would be CONVICTED.
That is how important it is to have the 67 votes in the Senate. He was going to 'hang tough' and fight the impeachment, until Goldwater and Hugh Scott went to see him in the WH; he first claimed he had more than 33 votes in the Senate. They told him he did not. That was the turning point, but only then did he give in.

It took hearing after hearing, for years, to get to that point in the Senate. And that was after the final smoking gun. We are not even remotely close to that point now with bush, although we should be. This is a different world, a VERY different Dem party, and not one I am very happy with.
