Watergate and Monica. Yeah, they're the same. Don't take my word for it, listen to retiring congressmen Henry Hyde, who lead the <strike>witchhunt</strike> impeachment efforts against Clinton.

The veteran republican is also admitting for
the first time
that the impeachment of Clinton may have been in part
political revenge against the democrats for the impeachment proceedings
against GOP President Richard Nixon 25 years earlier.

  "Was this pay back?" asked Andy Shaw. 

"I can't say it wasn't. But I also thought that the Republican Party
should stand for something, and if we walked away from this, no matter
how difficult, we could be accused of shirking our duty," said Hyde

Lets see, we've got obstruction of justice, abuses of power, and contempt of Congress on the one hand, and White House hanky-panky on the other. I guess they're just about each as bad as the other. If you're a republican.

Oh, and the original version of this story, which ABC pulled, was even feistier. Check it out.
