Tonight's show will be a repeat of the one about impeachment and we'll likely continue to discuss it at our next gathering of Moyers Talkers, next Thursday, August 16, at 7:00 PM in the Learning Center of the Glendale Public Library Central Library.
Also up for consideration with blog and spoken comments are topics from last week's guests, Barbara Ehrenreich on the gap between rich and poor, and cultural critic, Clive James on politics and the arts, as well as two earlier programs which featured earmark reform, who's the enemy in Iraq, the Yes Men political theater events, and poet Martin Espada.

“That is why we ought to be discussing impeachment. Not because of George Bush and Dick Cheney but because we are establishing a presidency that does not respect the rule of law. And people, Americans, are rightly frightened by that.” - John Nichols
This week on Bill Moyers Journal (KCET)
Talk of impeachment is in the air as a recent opinion poll says that nearly half of Americans favor impeachment of the President and more than half believe Vice President Cheney should be impeached. In a conversation that generated a passionate response when first broadcast, Bill Moyers gets perspective from Constitutional scholar Bruce Fein, who wrote the first article of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, and The Nation’s John Nichols, author of The Genius of Impeachment.
