John Deeth Blog: Dodd: Father's Nuremberg Service Forged My Values

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

At Chris Dodd's Iowa City appearance Friday, he spoke more about his
father than himself, using his father's service as the number two
prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials to focus on the importance of the
Constitution and the rule of law. Larry Baker, an author and former
Iowa City council member, asked the last question and said he had
agreed with every word Dodd had said. But in that case, asked Baker,
why aren't George Bush and Dick Cheney being impeached? "I won't argue
the substance," said Dodd "But Having been through it, it takes all of
the oxygen out of the room. To be very practical, the most important
thing is to elect a new administration." Dodd predicted that a focus
on impeachment would lead to Democratic defeat.
