In a move that could only be described as befuddling, Presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich (D – Ohio) presented a bill before the House yesterday calling for the impeachment Vice President Dick Cheney.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly stated that the Democrats have no interest in pursuing impeachment of Mr. Cheney or President Bush over the Iraq war. House Republicans pounced on the opportunity to show the Dems with egg on their face and nearly succeeded in granting the bill a hour debate on the House floor. A motion to bounce the proposal to the House Judiciary Committee was eventually passed.
Was Kucinich just looking to stir things up and gain some publicity for his Presidential bid? Is he looking to position himself against rank-and-file Democrats just in time for the primaries? He had to know this bill would be dead in the water right?
