It is astounding that the democrats, in general, and Nancy Pelosi, in particular, moved so much to block the impeachment of Bush. I see the democrats and republicans being very much alike.

Does that mean that most politicians are looking towards our leaders and legislators maintaing a position as being above the law? To me this is very scary. That now means that our president now has no obligation to conduct himself or herself in a lawful manner.

Bush going up in the helicopter is a lot like the Pods flying up into the sky at the end of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers."
