Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) raises possibility of Bush impeachment: “The president says, ‘I don’t care.’ He’s not accountable anymore,’ Hagel says, measuring his words by the syllable and his syllables almost by the letter. ‘He’s not accountable anymore, which isn’t totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don’t know. It depends how this goes. The conversation beaches itself for a moment on that word — impeachment — spoken by a conservative Republican from a safe Senate seat in a reddish state. It’s barely even whispered among the serious set in Washington, and it rings like a gong in the middle of the sentence, even though it flowed quite naturally out of the conversation he was having about how everybody had abandoned their responsibility to the country, and now there was a war going bad because of it.”
