Old Estragon, of course, recalls Lott's record- while a congressman - in the Nixon impeachment debate and the later Clinton impeachment debate.

My impression has always been that Lott's prime concern is Lott.
This is a skilful manoeuvre whereby Democrats will find it very difficult to exploit any weaknesses that arise procedurally from Bush's relatively
tiny minority. And Republicans who are anti-Lott will find it very hard to mount a challenge as this will appear, now, to be anti-unity.
