Impeachment Update

Howard Kurtz, writing on the Washington Post column, Media Notes, has an update on the brewing impeachment issue.  It turns out that some Republican strategists have been hyping the threat of impeachment.  Apparently, they believe that the possibility of impeachment of the President might motivate some voters to go to the polls and vote for Republican congressional candidates.

Personally, I do not see the problem with impeachment hearings, even looking at it from the Republican perspective.  After all, with regard to the domestic spying operations, the Administration keeps telling us that if we haven't done anything wrong, we have nothing to fear.  Certainly, the same principle applies to the Administration itself.
