We have to be able to remove a sitting President and Vice President from office because having them in power for a guaranteed, fixed-term is just too dangerous.
As it is the sections of the constitution that deal with impeachment of a president are a myth. It's never happened in the past and that is certainly not because it hasn't been known that presidents have committed high crimes. Nixon, Reagan, Bush I, and now Bush II have all been highly impeachable by their actions. Cheney too.
If you want evidence of why this is true, read this report about the plans for a third Bush War with Iran.
Our constitution as it is now isn't just dangerous, it's unsafe at any speed.
Here is more about the Bush junta's planning for war with Iran. Keeping another generation of Americans ignorant of the real history of the expanding war in Indochina is also dangerous.
