Kucinich Pushes Impeach Cheney Resolution

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) plans to take to the floor of the House Tuesday and introduce a privileged resolution to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. The privilege approach allows him to circumvent Democratic leadership, which opposes voting on the measure.

His resolution will be met with a motion to table it. A vote against the motion will be a vote in favor of impeaching Cheney – as Kucinich explains over and over in this YouTube clip taken from a presidential campaign stop.

An American Research Group poll this summer found more than half of Americans support his impeachment.

Regardless, the measure is expected to fail by a wide margin.
