Kucinich to call for impeaching Cheney

Rep. Dennis Kucinich is calling for Vice President Dick Cheney's impeachment.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a Democratic presidential hopeful, will announce Tuesday he plans to introduce Articles of Impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.

But the chances or "slim to none" that House Democratic leaders will advance Kucinich's impeachment articles, CNN's Senior Political Correspondent Candy Crowley said.

"This is something they don't want to get into," Crowley said. "First of all, because the American people didn't vote the Democrats into office last year, they don't think, in order to do impeachment. They think that the American people voted them in to help bring about an end to this war."

"There is also the lesson learned from the impeachment of Bill Clinton which was very unpopular with people," she added. "In fact, Clinton retained a popularity rate which President Bush doesn't have."
