Impeachment shameful?

In reading that lawmakers are now discussing Swallow's impeachment ("GOP lawmaker: Impeachment only way to absolve or remove Swallow," May 31), I have to ask myself if this is the best way to spend the taxpayers' money. I used to think that impeachment meant shame and expulsion from office in disgrace.

But Bill Clinton showed us that it means nothing to be impeached. To this day, he is paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to speak and people still think he was the best president; in fact Obama relied very heavily on Bill Clinton to win his presidency. So I don't understand what the big deal is about impeachment.
