I read your story from this morning“Time For Us to All Take Action” and emailed Dianne Feinstein, here is her response.
Thank you for your letter concerning impeachment proceedings against Vice President Richard Cheney. I appreciate the time you took to write and welcome the opportunity to respond.
In our most recent elections, the American people expressed clear disapproval with the path this country was on. They are tired of partisan politics and of an Administration that pays little heed to the wishes of the American people. They want-and deserve-a Congress that holds the Administration accountable and fulfills its Constitutional responsibility to check and balance the Executive branch. I share this sentiment and am determined to work hard and across party lines in the United States Senate to promote issues that are of real concern to most Americans, including the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan, homeland security, global warming, and lobbying and election reform.
At this time, however, I believe that impeachment proceedings against President Bush or Vice President Cheney will only divide the country even further, frustrating our hopes for a meaningful change in direction, while having little chance of success.
I have been deeply disappointed by many of this Administration’s actions and have been outspoken in those instances. Nevertheless, given the challenges our country faces I believe that we need to focus on constructive and cooperative steps that would lead us in the right direction.
Again, thank you for your letter. If you have any further questions or comments, please contact my office in Washington, D.C. at (202) 224-3841. Best regards.

LMZ, thanks for the email, thats about what I expected from Feinstein. Here is my response to her.
Dear Ms. Feinstein,
I am afraid I am going to have to seriously disagree with you on your assessment of the Cheney Impeachment situation. You state that impeachment proceeding would only divide the country even further. I don’t think so, over 70% of the American people favor The US leaving Iraq, yet Bush refuses to do so. You have the people behind you. Let’s not forget that this war was based on lies that members of Congress fell for when the blogoshere knew quite well about the lies well in advance, as did the 6 Million people worldwide who marched against the war on February 15, 2003. If you read my article from today then you now know what is currently going on. Impeachment may be your only chance, and our only chance.
You also said “I have been deeply disappointed by many of this Administration’s actions and have been outspoken in those instances.”
Then DO SOMETHING about it. That is your job. You have the power, use it. The American People demand nothing less.
