anti-impeachment argument...

One of the main arguments that many people use against impeachment of Mssrs. Bush &/or Cheney is that there is not much time left for this administration.

That is a bunch of B.S.

The Article of Impeachment against Bill Clinton was passed on December 19, 1998. Acquittal by the Senate was on February 12, 1999. Bill Clinton left office on January 20, 2001. That was actually a little over 2 years. We've been hearing calls for impeachment in this administration for at least the last 6 months, if not longer.

If it was enough time for Bill Clinton, why isn't it enough time for Mr. Bush?

just asking...

[Note: While I endorse impeachment because of the nature and number of extra-legal activities of these two men, I realize that the practical problem is that the Democrats & Republicans who talk about it do not have enough leverage in the Congress and it might be an exercise in frustration. As far as the other main argument, that an impeachment would tear the country apart, how much farther can it be torn than it already is? However, if any president warranted a serious Article of Impeachment, there are more than enough reasons to pursue this one.]
