Just a quick but striking quote here, from Oregon Senator Ron Wyden‘s review of his recent Iran-centered town hall meetings. This was on the subject of impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, which a number of people at those meetings (at Portland, Eugene and Medford) insisted upon.

I finished by saying that we should extend the same due process to President Bush that was extended to President Clinton, and that it shouldn’t matter whether you are Independent, Democrat or Republican when it comes to due process. A significant chorus of “no” came from the audience, including cries of “he doesn’t deserve it!” When passionate liberals argue in opposition to due process, you know that good and decent people have long ago exceeded their boiling point.
