ABSTRACT
This section discusses issues related to government policy and politics in the U.S. A recent Zogby poll has found that only about half of those polled thought that the Founding Fathers would approve of speed limits. It speculates on the action that President George W. Bush could take regarding the prison sentence of I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Cheney's convicted former chief of staff. Forty-five percent of respondents to the American Research Group poll said that they want the White House to start impeachment proceedings against President Bush.
