"So, fear not my conservative friends, there are many ways to maneuver through an electorate to win elections." And the most direct way is to SHOW UP AND VOTE!!!
The only way that will happen is if Republicans and Independents want it enough to SHOW UP and VOTE. If we don't, we deserve everything we get...!

Those "others" that are "almost certain" to vote had better turn out this November and encourage their like-minded kin, neighbors coworkers, etc to do the same. The "certainty" of the 2012 Presidential race had too many people staying home because they "knew what would happen." They did - it didn't - and we see where we are today. If they stay at home again, we get what we deserve.
The DC Taxicab Commission tried to do something similar, going so far as the commission administrator setting up a "sting" and having an Uber driver arrested. They have apparently worked things out. Hopefully, VA and Uber will do the same.
This link from the Congressional Research Staff doesn't implicitly state that the Senate HAS to try it but doesn't say they can reject the articles as presented by the House: http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/98-806.pdf Another somewhat less authoritative link: http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/thepresidentandcabinet/a/impeachment.htm And yet another: http://www.law.cornell.edu/background/impeach/impeach.htm None of these say the Senate can demure the trial aspect of the proceedings.
Can somebody please explain exactly how this episode (the latest among many) doesn't constitute "high crimes and misdemeanors?"
Voter turnout is essential in the next two election cycles. We've already seen the result of "he sucks so bad there's no way he can win again, so I can stay home" attitude.
This has a ring of truth to it concerning colonoscopies. I was told by my primary care provider that colonoscopies were too costly and that referrals had to come from another department (hematology or oncology) before they would be performed.
As a disabled vet, I'm dependent upon the VA for my healthcare and I personally have no complaints. That said, I also use the facilities in Washington, DC where I believe scrutiny is the highest and the issues are less likely. Shinseki should do the honorable thing and announce his resignation within two weeks and on the way out publicize the problems that he saw but couldn't fix. My guess is that its the bloated bureaucracy and the bonus payments tied to elements that if not met directly impact the delivery of healthcare to veterans.
