"Our founding fathers intentionally set an extremely high constitutional standard for impeachment to make sure that impeachment was reserved for the most egregious conduct that could have profound adverse consequences for the nation and could not be routinely used for political or policy disagreements or as a substitute for political participation. One lesson I learned as a member of the House Judiciary Committee during the Clinton impeachment was how impeachment can detract from other important work of the American people. This lesson makes me an unlikely candidate to lead the charge for a Bush or Cheney impeachment. However, as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I would certainly be an active participant in the impeachment process if an impeachment proceeding is initiated and I continue to keep an open mind about any such prospects." - Congressman Mel Watt
