"Name your best case for impeachment."

I thought I'd post a few links

http://www.salon.com/politics/war_room/2006/02/27/impeach/index.html

And of course Lewis H. Lapham's masterful The Case for Impeachment from March 2006 Harpers Magazine of which this is only an excerpt. Try a library.

And you're all very welcome I'm sure,

y. Hence the comment. Not my favorite Democrat, actually I'm too far away and too insulated from the nitty gritty of a lot of American politics to actually have a favorite Democrat though I have a favorite Republican in the person of Chuck Hagel, whom I would expect is one of your less favorite R's.

We should demand that Teddy Kennedy be impeached.

We should also demand that John Dean be fired.

I'll bet the Democrats would quietly support both actions.

Rob and Duckman were talking about impeaching Bush.

Your post was about Kennedy and Dean.

What do those two have to do with Bush?

with the discussion of the impeachment of Bush for misleading Congress and other forms of idiocy. What you have linked to is another story altogether, though one I have posted on regarding Al Qaeda's activity during Clinton's presidency. Talking about the possible threat of Saddam Hussein is miles from undertaking an ill planned and under equipped invasion costing 3000+ American lives, and apparently more than 300,000 Iraqi and other lives a significant portion of which I grant should be laid at the door of the Zarqawi-lead insurgency. I have recently seen 2 retired American generals talking about the mismanagement of the immediate post invasion period, insufficient troops leading to the looting and the establishing of the insurgency. Both of them laid the blame on Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the Dept of Defence plan including too few troops to maintain order following the fall of Saddam and the predictable guerilla conflict likely to erupt thereafter. I didn't invent that, military people urged a larger commitment of troops but were overruled by what I am tempted to call the Draft-Dodger Coalition which now runs the Defense Department. A sad departure from the superb competence of Gulf War 1 as lead by Powell, Schwartzkopf et al. Powell was frozen out of this Administration, probably because he was more capable than virtually anybody else there. The extremely intelligent and attractive Condoleeza Rice included. Her expertise was neither military nor the Middle East but was Soviet and post Soviet Russia, which didn't exactly prepare her well for the current conflict.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
