20. No.
If the VP is impeached he would resign - allowing the President to select his replacement. Bush would probably pick McCain or Romney. Either one would be approved for fear of a complete constitutional meltdown -someone has to be prepared to pickup the "football". This would allow McCain or Romney to run for the top spot from the sweet spot of the vice-presidency during a time of war.

If Bush is impeached then Romney or McCain will become President - allowing them to run as incumbents for the top position in 2008.

Frankly, some party (rethugs) people are hoping for a Cheney impeachment. They see it as the only way to save their party.
