Impeaching Dick Cheney [VIDEO]

If you've been disappointed with the Democratic Congress lately...and I think that you are, you've got to be happy to see this happening. As Rep. Waters says, "Dick Cheney is the poster child for everything that is wrong with this administration." Many people will jump on this announcement from both the right and the left. Liberals will say that this is a lost cause, that the votes and motivation aren't there to remove Cheney. Folks on the right will call it theater, and partisan politics. All factions should pause and ask themselves, what has Cheney done while in office, and does that truly sit well with you? Click on the video to your right to hear more from two Democrats who aren't afraid to confront the Administration head on.
