Impeachment at a Local Level

NPR's Cheryl Corley examines the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton from the local level. Congressman John Porter is an undecided Republican who said last month he prefers to censure Clinton rather than impeach him. Negative reaction to this comment was so strong he decided to stop talking until after the full House votes. Some of Porter's constituents, mostly Republicans, want Clinton to resign. Others think the Congress should move on. And most want the whole thing to go away.
