The Orgins Of Obstruction

Why McCain Wants to Leave the Supreme Court Hanging:

...The majority leader of the House of Representatives was telling members of his conference that their constitutional responsibility to begin the process of removing an elected president from office was a required party-line vote.

Newt Gingrich’s politics of destruction was a prelude to this moment, but once Tom DeLay defined the impeachment of a president as a political act rather than a grave constitutional responsibility, for the Republican Party there was no turning back.

Eighteen years later, John McCain is playing by Tom DeLay’s rules.
