Dick-

i completely disagree with this statement. in my opinion, one of the main points of the perjury law is to ensure that people cannot decide for themselves what is important information and what is not (and thus can be lied about). that is what the jury is for. any attempt to lie under oath undermines our whole justice system. therefore, it is not the subject of the lie but the lie itself. i also think that it should never have gotten this far but once it reaches the point that clinton is under oath, he must tell the truth.

so the only question, in my view, is whether or not perjury and obstruction of justice are impeachable offenses. i must say that i hold perjury out as one of the USA's most important laws and is an important part of the foundation of our entire legal system, which presents the facts and allows peers to judge. any effort to undermine the integrity of this system is a serious matter and is impeachable, in my opinion.

the argument that he shouldn't be impeached over sex is irrelevant to me because, while i agree, he is being impeached for perjury not sex.

i agree with you on the effect to the market and that it won't have a big impact on most companies. our economy has been managed by greenspan for some time and when greenie retires there could be a significant shift in economic prospects for all companies depending on the replacement but not in response to a gore for clinton trade. i am very scared of the day greenspan announces his retirement.
