Well if Impeachment is "off the table" for Bush, how about Cheney?
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, April 18, 2007

Dem Presidential candidate and Congressional Rep. Dennis Kucinich is going to try to impeach someone, by heavens:
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the most liberal of the Democratic presidential candidates in the primary field, declared in a letter sent to his Democratic House colleagues this morning that he plans to file articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.
I can imagine this will probably go nowhere, but if it does, I'd actually believe that it has more of a chance of hurting the Dems than it does Cheney or the Republicans. While some on the left will applaud this an push it, should it every happen, my guess is it will end up turning on the Democrats much like the Republican impeachment of Clinton eventually turned on them.

But red meat is red meat and this is about as red as it gets for some on the left.

I genuinely look forward to reading his charges or, as Jim Henley put it, pass the popcorn!

It does solve one problem for the Dems... If they impeached Bush, Cheney would become president. You know they don’t want that. So they need to get rid of him first...

Hypothetically, Cheney is removed from office. Who would his replacement be? One of the presidential candidates? Guiliani? Thompson? Maybe Rice? Would that hurt or help them?

If I were Bush and Cheney was impeached and removed from office, I’d nominate Rice as VP. What a coup that would be! If the Dems are thinking past the ends of their noses, they won’t hand Bush that opportunity.

In office, Cheney makes a good target. Take Cheney out of office, and you give Bush an opportunity to score big points and you remove your favorite target.

Most likely help. It would give whomever was named "executive experience" and enhanced visibility during the run up to the party nominations.
