Two Presidents have been impeached: Andrew Johnson and Clinton. Neither was convicted by the Senate, although Johnson won by only one vote.It would be a waste of time to try to impeach Obama.
The main case for this would be that Congress would waste a lot of time. There is a good case for that.There would have to be a legal reason that the voters would accept. Every President violates the Constitution sufficiently often, so that a plausible legal case might be made for Obama’s impeachment. But it would have to be plausible politically. Otherwise, it would backfire: underdog politics.

That was what happened to Clinton. He is supposedly worth something like $80 million, due to speaking fees. That’s getting even? Hardly. Meanwhile, Bush II rarely appears in public. He did not get impeached.The Senate would not vote to convict Obama. The Democrats would see the horrifying threat: President Biden.If Joe Biden were to become President of the United States, Hillary Clinton would not get the nomination.

Pres. Biden would guarantee that there would never be another President Clinton. Mrs. Clinton would fade into a well-deserved obscurity. She would get to spend the rest of her life changing her hairstyles.I think a Republican could defeat Biden fairly easily. Even if Biden won, he would be less of a threat to our liberties than Hillary Clinton. He has a marvelous ability to put his foot in his mouth. He would become, not so much a bone of contention as a source of amusement. I don’t think he has the stomach for becoming a dictator.

There is something flaky about him. Flaky people make rotten dictators. It is why I would have voted for John Kerry in 2004, had I not written in Ron Paul’s name.I did not want to see Clinton impeached and convicted. This was not because of any sympathy for Clinton. But, in 1998, I did not want to see Al Gore become President.
