Woodward so far:
    Two dynamite political issues and one impeachable offense

Two campaign issues and an impeachable offense. It’s a start.

1. The President told the Saudi Ambassador about our war plans two days before he told his Secretary of State.

2. The Saudi Ambassador promised to knock down oil prices in time to help the President get re-elected.

3. Money appropriated for Afghan reconstruction was instead used, without Congressional approval, for preparations for the war in Iraq.

Well, it’s a start.
