A huge fraction of Americans believe that impeachment of Bush (remember - merely a process to weigh the evidence and indict or not) should have been serously pursued by the House. Only one strategy might have worked: send a clear message that unless the House held serious impeachment hearings, then people would NOT vote for ANY Democrats in 2008 but would sit out the election.

Without this meaningful threat all continued talk about impeachment is just mental masturbation.
