Prospects were considerably brighter for bipartisan measures to improve veterans’ health care and prevent a cutoff in highway construction aid. Officials said both bills appeared likely to clear Congress by day’s end, and that legislatio...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-582478552014-07-31T17:59:02.4-06:00" id="#license-2014-07-31T17:59:02.4-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

This is the logical question Republicans are now trying to duck. There is a reason why impeachment is a big deal in Washington this week. It’s not just because a call to defend President Obama motivates the Democrats’ base, although it surely does.

Memories of Bill Clinton and the campaign of 1998 may help explain why Speaker John Boehner and the current GOP leadership want no part of such talk now, although conservatives increasingly clamor for it.
