Impeachment call too late; voters on the move

Former Senator George McGovern, in Sunday’s Washington Post, said George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should be impeached. True, there’s still time to make the White House accountable for trampling the Constitution. There is a point to be made, and simply allowing Bush and Cheney to serve out their terms in office does not suffice. They should be held accountable.

For House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to have taken impeachment off the table and, in essence, sweep all that White House dirt under the rug, was infuriating to those hoping to see the administration taken to task. McGovern makes a good case for revisiting the issue, but he makes it too late. In this already red-hot election year, it looks like the voters may be about to take things into their own hands.
