It is obvious that no-one knows for sure what will happen, so anything proposed is merely speculation until the time arrives. This makes the conversation all the better though!
I'm not betting on impeachment, as this needs Congressional support, and Pelosi is too scared she will lose her newly found power if she attempts this.
What really puzzles me, being a non-american (I don't live in the US either), is what the deal is with all this republican/democrat nonsense. I call it nonsense not out of disrespect, but while they keep you divided in a two party system, they work together behind the screens. One day the majority of the US people must begin to see this.
Who cares what ones political choices are, I say focus on the things you have in common and do something with it.
A peaceful protest showing democrats and republicans united sends out a far more powerful message than when it is the democrats who want to stop the war (as an example).

iori-komei, thanks for your reply, much appreciated and you make some good points.
All over the world there is left and right in the democratic societies, however in the US there are only two parties representative of these sides, whereas other nations have several. This keeps the balance of power more aligned, and allows for the people's voice to be indirectly stronger. Alignment of power and a strong people's voice are two things missing right now in the US.
What I mean with protestors from both parties demonstrating is that they could have signs saying "I'm a democrat and I don't agree with this issue (whatever it may be)", or "I am a republican and I disagree...." Having two of these signs beside eachother and hitting the news will have a greater impact than not doing so, wouldn't you agree?
What I am trying to do is show that by keeping you divided in these two camps, they have a carte blanche to continue their agenda, which is supported by most govt members from both parties. If this agenda is not in your best interest, is it more important to be left, or right, or to have a leader that protects ALL Americans?
Pelosi has the power to get the people behind her to force congress to go for impeachment, as there seems to be a large majority of the public that would support that, yet she chooses not to. Plus the majority of the Senate supports escalating the Iran agenda. They're not all Republican are they? No, there are just as many democrats holding posts here.

He has taken the fight off US soil and put it into the terrorists back yard.
If Jeb Bush was running in the Presidential Election (and wins, legally or illegally), I would think there might be another 8 years to play with whatever plans they have, if any. Since he is not running, that makes me believe that if anything is going to happen, it's going to happen by the election date or shortly there after. Not to mention, if something was up the Bush's sleeve, then it stands to reason that papa Bush will want to see it happen in his life time (Ego), and he's getting older by the day. haha Those are the reasons why it might happen soon.

do you believe he'd go to certain lengths to allow or instigate an attack should his term look like its going to expire without a fundamentalist strike?

Whatever the case, I just can't see a 2008 election happening - period.

I think he is waiting and praying for another "attack" from afar. I'm not sure that there could be another public attack on the scale of 9/11 without some sort of public uprising against the administration, either for ignorance or treachery.
