"Another item on such a list would be a provision that when a president is impeached and removed, his VP goes out the door with him and the office is either vacant until the next election or an emergency election is held to fill the office for the remainder of the current term. Granted removing a president should be difficult but it should not be impossible and if we couldn't remove Slick, we'd not have been able to remove Hitler or Nero either."

Trent Lott simply and correctly refused to hand the country over to Algor with a year left on SlicKKK's second term and let Algor run and probably win as an incumbent. That scenario should not be possible.

Stephanopoulos announced that the Clinton White House was planning what he called an “Ellen Rometsch” strategy.

In Clinton's case, his "Ellen" saved the dress and saved her life.

” - - - David P. Schippers, who was Chief Investigative Counsel for the Clinton impeachment, reveals in his book Sell-Out that Republican leaders, from the get-go, had no intention of holding a proper impeachment trial or of convicting Bill Clinton. It was all a charade. - - - “

And thus began the current era of no Congressional Checks and Balances on Imperial-minded elected officials such as Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

Personally I do not celebrate.

This botched operation paved the way for future Presidents (most notably the current White Hut occupant) to misbehave and smash the Constitution in any way they wish.

Clinton taught them all that if you hunker down and go on offense you can survive even the worst of scandals. I have seen the change in attitude and tactics even down to the local level. That has NOT been a good thing for the body politic.

Thanks for posting! I remember watching Freepers design the full page ad and raising the $10,000 plus to publish the ad in the Washington Times.....and all that was done in one evening.

“Clinton taught them all that if you hunker down and go on offense you can survive even the worst of scandals.”

Agreed.

But Clinton had one major advantage during this period he used it fully.

The media.

They covered for him. They shielded him. They excused him.

In short, they did not properly attempt to cover the impeachment and trial. If they had, things could easily have been different.

Hey Ben Hecks, long time.

Those were good times in Freeper land. Sadly the level of discourse here now usually falls well short of the bar set in those days, imo.

I do not recall his name, he was from the south, I’m afraid my operation leaves little holes in my memory, but he was from the south and had to step down after he made some nice remarks about Strom Thurmond when he passed.

I agree. It's far riskier these days to state an opinion, ANY opinion, that isn't 'conformist'.

But, it's still the best place on the web to get news, and real information.

Trent Lott and the Republicans did not have that power over those dems. The dems stuck with Clinton thick as thieves. It was a sad moment for the country to see how the dems behaved during the impeachment

If only trent lott hadn’t been such a corrupt and vulnerable to blackmail leader, we might have actually kicked the adulterer and chief out of office.

One thing I have wondered about the Clinton impeachment and trial, why didn’t they bring up China-gate or other scandals, instead of putting all their bets on the Lewinsky episode?

15 years. 15 years.

Hopefully, we will see another pic on the WH grounds before 2016, all the DEms standing behind their latest impeached PRES__ent to the nation.. standing tall for high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s their nature to rebel, after all.. and then castigate anyone who doesn’t see things their way.

Kudos and a salute to all those who were there leading the charge.

.. let us not forget the very sad outcome when the Republican leader in the Senate let him off the hook.

Why did so few in CONGRE$$ refuse to go and review the documents and evidence that was stored in a locked room in the basement of the COB building. The info was available for any representative or senator to view, if they so chose to do so.. out of duty , not to cover their own sorry arses.

Only a couple did.. When you condone lawlessness at the highest levels of gubamint, you have effectively doomed us all to a decline that over time will consume all of us.

I disagree—Bill Clinton is and will always be the impeached president of the USA.

The fact that the Senate did not vote to convict him is not our fault.
