"Do you think it's time?"

Dennis Kucinich has no shot at becoming President. He is Ralph Nader with a real feel for the political landscape, but without the possibility of being a spoiler in November.

That said, Kucinich is the only prominent Democrat that should file charges of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. It is not cowardice for someone the likes of Clinton or Obama or even Edwards to dodge any talk of impeachment. For better or for worse, the Democrats' top tier has to look towards the future and not dwell on the failures of the Republicans' most audacious political power grab since the Civil War and Reconstruction. The sooner the vocabulary of "Permanent Majority" and "neoconservativism" is erased from memory, the better.

In the meantime, perhaps the White House knows things about Iraq that the rest of the world doesn't (possible, but not probable, and definitely not important enough that the rest of the world couldn't garner such insight on its own), but the impression remains that Cheney and Bush and all that swore unconditional loyalty before patriotism to country have conducted the Iraq War in a criminal manner that dishonors the soldiers in the field.
