WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Former US vice president Al Gore, a staunch critic of George W Bush, has said he doesn't agree with calls for impeaching the president due to lack of "time" and "consensus." Speaking to PBS during an interview on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, Gore had to this to say about an issue that some Democrats have been talking about for some time now, or at least ever since Bush was re-elected back in 2004 (roll tape#1 o.q.’likely to be successful” On being asked whether he threw the towel in too soon in the 2000 presidential elections, where he narrowly lost to Bush, Gore told PBS’s Gwen Ifill (roll tape#2 o.q.”history”) Gore’s views on Impeachment are slightly different than that of another Democrat who is definitely running for President – Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich. He doesn’t want to impeach the President, but Vice President Dick Cheney, as he told reporters last weekend in a campaign appearance (roll tape#3 o.q.”held accountable”) The Associated Press reported earlier this week that Michigan Congresman John Conyers said he supports a national effort calling for the impeachment of both President Bush and Vice President Cheney, but stopped short of pledging to take action to back it.
