I'm not sure it would have that effect. It is clear we are not dealing with rational people.
There are several reasons why I don't think Impeachment is our best option now.:
1) The Bushites are NUTZ and would not blink at taking out several hundred thousand American and Iranian lives to stay in power. Remember, Karl Rove was and is fighting for one party rule in America and Cheney is humping for Unitary Executive.
2) Even by the time that election 2006 gave the Democrats a good majority in the House and a very slim-to-no majority in the Senate, it was too late for impeachment and trial by the Senate, as it was clear that the Bushites were going to be fighting for the clearly unconstitutional "Unitary Executive," or imperial presidency, and would fight for or destroy every last smidgen of paper or electronic communications without so much as a twinge of conscious. That battle, I am afraid, would cause BushCo to go on a major offensive against political opposition at home and Neocon targets abroad. After the last 7 years, I would not put anything past the evil creatures in this administrations and their enablers in Congress, as well as their advisers/co-conspirators outside government.
3) Impeachment and trial by the Senate is only meant to remove elected officials from office, at which point they can be tried in a court of law, for crimes against the constitution/and or the people. This bunch has done those crimes and much worse. They have committed international crimes, serious war crimes.
No matter what the Congress does or does not do about BushCo, they will be out of office in less than 7 months and free to be tried, if not here, the Hague. As I see it, The International Court has the dibs on BushCo, as it is the international crimes that have caused the most death, maiming and mayhem.
It may well be up to the people to see that justice is served.
Bush is on a war crime spree, and only impeachment can stop him
Over the last three days, many tens of thousands of impeachment supporters have written and called Congress demanding accountability for Bush's war crimes. In a Physicians for Human Rights report published yesterday, entitled "Broken Laws, Broken Lives," two-star former General Anthony Taguba, wrote, "After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account."

Gen. Taguba's words could easily have come from of an impeachment activist, or excerpted from the 35 Articles of Impeachment introduced last week. But instead they came the Army general who led the investigation into the detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib. Taguba's comments shed new light on the horror of Bush's crimes, and are a striking confirmation of what the impeachment movement has been saying for years. Taguba's report comes right on the heels of a McClatchy newspaper report that showed gross abuses of human rights occurred under Bush's watch, primarily at prisons in Afghanistan where detainees were held en route to Guantanamo — and that many of the prisoners were wrongly detained.
In the report released yesterday, Taguba said, "This report tells the largely untold human story of what happened to detainees in our custody when the Commander-in-Chief and those under him authorized a systematic regime of torture." After submitting his original report, General Taguba was predictably forced into retirement.
Taguba closed his comments with a direct call to action: "These men deserve justice as required under the tenets of international law and the United States Constitution." There is only one way for the Constitution to be brought into force and restore justice to the Bush administration's many victims: impeachment.
The House Judiciary Committee has the power to initiate impeachment hearings immediately, and act on the 35 Articles of Impeachment for George W. Bush. This is a time fraught with not only great challenges, but great opportunity. The impeachment movement has hit the streets with a new flyer to let the American public know about the necessity of impeachment. We've been calling our representatives, sending letters, and building up our resources so we can carry this historic movement forward.
