when a special prosecutor was digging for more dirt on clinton the american people were flat out sickened. not by the dirt, but by the out of control prosecutor, the republicans cheering him on, and the ungodly expense of an investigation that seemed to go on and on and on. it reduced the populations general good humor towards republicans. if the dems do this then the result will be the same, they are simply incapable of stopping an investigation which might give them the opportunity to villify bush and cheney again.
that being said, this would set a precedent that could be used to indicte oblabo later on and holder knows it. oblabo knows it. they would not want the next president investigating oblabo for his treasonous determination to socialize this country.
Yea but - they also got sick of it because of the State Run Media spin which generated symapthy for Clintigula and hate towards Ken Starr. That was nothing compared to the spin and hate they would generate should this develop into an investigation.
With all due respect, I'm not sure the public was as spontaneously sickened as you recall. Most of that attitude, I felt at the time, was generated by a sympathetic media encouraging them to be "sickened"
