Impeachment Could Be The Perfect Storm For The Republicans

Chuck Hagel almost called for impeaching Bush. In Esquire’s April addition he is interviewed and said this about President Bush, “He’s not accountable anymore, which isn’t totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don’t know. It depends on how this goes,” Hagel went on to say this, “This is not a monarchy,” he added “There are ways to deal with it. And I would hope the president understands that.” Hagel has been a frequent critic of Bush’s Iraq war in the past. He doesn’t actually call for Bush’s impeachment, but he does say that it is becoming more and more a possibility. If the Democrats do actually impeach Bush, it may come back to haunt them later. This could give the Republicans a candidate to rally around. Dick Cheney could step down prior to the impeachment due to health problems, something that has already been mentioned. Then the Republicans and neo-cons could pick a new vice-president. Perfect for going into the next election, an incumbent vice-president, or president if the Democrats do decide to impeach. May be a way to boost Fred Thompson, or even trump the Democrats with a vice-president Condi Rice. It would be a perfect storm for the republicans.
