Kucinich vs. Cheney The Impeachmentdome

It may just be a stunt to get a few more votes in the first primary and it may not gain any momentum, but Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, introduced articles of impeachment against Dick Cheney in the House last week. The transcripts are a pretty good read especially when he is asked why he is bringing them against the vice president and not against the president. He answers,

It's significant and responsible to start in this way, because if the same charges would relate to the president as relate to the vice president, you would then have to go through the constitutional agony of impeaching two presidents consecutively.

Later on someone brings this up again with the question,

Just to follow up, when you say the vice president led us into war, wouldn't that be President Bush? Isn't Cheney working for Bush?
I just wonder how many people in that hallowed chambered had to look down or cough?
