1. You need a majority for the articles to be passed
and you need a simple majority in teh senate to convict.

Read the constitution it is n there, under Article II, Section IV

3. I think articles of impeachment have to be brought by the house
and with DeLay and Hassert, it will never happen. The reason it was so easy to impeach Clinton was because it was a republican congress. It is obvious this republican congress will protect the chimp.

4. Constitution says
majority of the House to impeach.

2/3 of the senate to convict.
