The host seems like a good guy; he was trying to be polite, but his incredulousness came thru nonetheless. He was stunned, it seemed to me, that Shays could conclude from the evidence that clinton did indeed rape Broaddrick ("viciously and twice"!) and yet fall back on what can most generously be described as a technicality to vote not to impeach.

Shays' argument, that he was limited to an obstruction rationale, exposes an utter ignorance of the Constitution, (He ought to ask hillary about that one. When hillary wanted to impeach a president, she argued that bad conduct (with concomitant loss of moral authority) was sufficient grounds,)

Shays was more likely limited by some clinton obstruction of another kind, i.e., clinton obstruction directed toward him. (Shays' vote, it should be noted, took a 180º after a little tete a tete with the rapist.)
