Kucinich probably won't try to impeach Obama 

Liberal, anti-war Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, has joined forces with a motley crew of conservative and liberal congressmen who are speaking out against American involvement in Libya's civil war.

But Kucinich, who in 2008 proposed impeachment articles against President George W. Bush over the Iraq War, poured cold water on the idea that he might repeat this performance. "There's not going to be an impeachment," he said. But he added in an interview on FOX News just now, "There's no question the president exceeded his constitutionally authorized authority."

Kucinich added that President Obama had an obligation to bring war plans to Congress before committing troops. "It doesn't matter that he checked with the UN. It doesn't matter that he checked with the Arab league."
