30. I think alot of people are talking right past each other on this issue.
I think most people *want* to see GW Bush impeached. But announcing an intention to impeach at this time would be putting the cart before the horse. The "process" Mr. Dreyfus refers to includes investigations- and those need to be done first to establish legitimacy.

If our representatives hold limp hearings and then fail to follow up, I'll be very angry. The problem here is that the right path (as I see it) and the wrong path look exactly the same at the start.
