Couldn't find an interesting "History Fact", so revived this one today...

Ummmnnnn......Grady.

There may have been proceedings at a fairly advanced stage but Bill Clinton was not impeached. He did see out his second term.


Have a good year in '08

Be well now

Bill Clinton was impeached. He was not, however, removed from office.

In 1998, as a result of allegations that he had lied during grand jury testimony regarding his testimony during the Paula Jones civil deposition, Clinton was the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives (the other being Andrew Johnson).

On February 12, 1999, the Senate concluded a 21-day trial with the vote on both counts falling short of the Constitutional requirement of a two-thirds majority to convict and remove an office holder.

He deserved impeachment, but it was a genuine blessing that he remained in office.

I voted for Clinton in 1992, an act I do not regret given the circumstances, but I voted for Bob Dole in 1996.

Clinton's presidency was a huge disappointment for me, but his removal from office would have been disasterous, in my opinion.

Some things are just meant to be.
