With the Democrats poised to retake the House next week, it’s only a matter of time before a freshly emboldened blue-state rep (besides John Conyers) dares to utter the i-word. Outside of D.C., there’s been no such reticence to suggest that George W. Bush has committeed high crimes and misdemeanors. Which isn’t to say that the idea of impeachment has any chance of going anywhere soon. Even if it does gain political traction, would forcing Bush into early retirement be worth the trouble? In our latest issue, Tim Dickinson wades into the slew of pro-impeachment books out there and considers these questions. I won’t give away the ending, but he’s not real excited by the (far-fetched) prospect of President Cheney or (gasp!) President Pelosi. Check it out.
