THAT is a trick question. Do i think a Democrat can do the job? :shk:
Do i think a Republican can do the job? Perhaps.
Like i said before, i'll take a good Republican anytime. I'll settle for a good Democrat anytime also.
Are there any? hmmm.... I will tell you that any change, as long as its not the current band of thugs, would be an improvement.

The U.N. is my first guess.
Full Text of the Fourth Convention
Part III. Status and Treatment of Protected Persons
Section I. Provisions common to the territories of the parties to the conflict and to occupied territories
Art. 27. Protected persons are entitled, in all circumstances, to respect for their persons, their honour, their family rights, their religious convictions and practices, and their manners and customs. They shall at all times be humanely treated, and shall be protected especially against all acts of violence or threats thereof and against insults and public curiosity.
Women shall be especially protected against any attack on their honour, in particular against rape, enforced prostitution, or any form of indecent assault.
Without prejudice to the provisions relating to their state of health, age and sex, all protected persons shall be treated with the same consideration by the Party to the conflict in whose power they are, without any adverse distinction based, in particular, on race, religion or political opinion.
However, the Parties to the conflict may take such measures of control and security in regard to protected persons as may be necessary as a result of the war.
At a book signing on Friday at Columbia University, a number of journalists told me they worried that Bush, Rove and Cheney, if they thought they were going to lose the House in November and face serious investigations into their crimes and deceits, would do something treasonous, like launching a war against Iran, or perhaps allowing another major terrorist attack against a U.S. target, so that they could then clamp down further on domestic freedom and ramp up jingoistic support among their wavering base.

Just a word for those who are worried about Cheney or someone else stepping into office, who do you think is really running the show now? Do you really think Bush is keeping Cheney from doing whatever he wants?
There is a "PLAN" and it will be carried out regardless who is sitting in the throne. They could put a chimp in the oval office and the country would never notice.
The point of impeachment is for the people to take back the country, STARTING with Bush. Nothing would change as far as who holds the reigns, but we'd have made the first step at reclaiming our country. Impeachment of Bush is just the first step.
And for those who think we can wait out 3 years and it will all be over, WAKE UP! Do you think they're going to just hand it over to the next in line? The front man might change but the reigns will still be held by the same people.
We have to Impeach this government and the first stop is the 'top'. Bush/Cheney.

You see every four years the nation votes for a President...
I hope you realize that a majority of Americans voted for the President, so you would really be taking over the nation, and forcing values that most people would oppose.
On November 2, 2004, Bush received a 50 percent or more vote of confidence in 31 of 50 states --30 states if you believe he did not legitimately win Ohio. How many states give him that same vote just a year and a half later, based on April 2006 approval polls? Four.
* Idaho 53%
* Nebraska 51%
* Utah 55%
* Wyoming 54%
Keep in mind also, that these four states collectively make up barely two percent of the 296.5 million people in the United States based on a July 2005 Census Bureau estimate, so in sheer numbers, it's not quite the same as if people in New York, California or Texas still like him.
Sorry, but impeachment isn't even on the table...
