Made on the Vermont radio airwaves Monday morning by John Nichols [right], distinguished progressive writer for The Nation and a telephone guest on today's Mark Johnson Show on WDEV AM-FM:
"Impeachment is not an option but a necessary response to a presidency that so dramatically mismanaged and misguided this nation. If we can’t impeach now, then we can never impeach because I guarantee to you that every president will always tell you that the times are too extraordinary to allow that president to be held to account.
"On this one I’ve got to go with Jefferson and say that the times are never too extraordinary to uphold the Constitution."
Nichols was on the panel at this evening's "Impeachment Teach-In" at Dartmouth. More on John Nichols here.
