Impeachment: worth a poll question

Dan Froomkin takes questions, liveonline:
"Chicago: Say what you will about Kucinich, but his articles of impeachment against Cheney are pretty straighforward and solid. The evidence is clear, and the matters involved are the most serious that a country could face -- deception by those entrusted with our national security. Also, is The Post going to do any polling on this? Kucinich Introduces Impeachment Articles Against Cheney (CQ Transcripts, April 24)

Dan Froomkin: Impeachment is a political act, and there's no way to make the argument with a straight face that it is in the cards anytime soon.

That said, on the rare occasions that anyone polls on the topic, a really pretty stunningly high percentage of Americans seem interested in the idea. For that reason alone, I think it's worth a poll question. It's a fascinating and troubling barometer."
