Since the beginning of his Congressional stint in 1994, LaHood was chairman of the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton in 1998…(Emphasis mine.) Then in the very next paragraph:
"Bipartisanship is the only way to succeed in a legislative body," LaHood said.Ha. The biggest act of political PARTISAN hackery during the 1990s came in the ridiculous (and failed) impeachment trial. Yeah, keep up the bipartisanship, Ray baby.
For what it’s worth, I think the notion of bipartisanship for its own sake is overrated. People disagree on issues and elected officials should fight for what they believe in, not seek some mythical bipartisan holy grail.
