Amy Goodman spent this past weekend in Washington, at the Capitol, watching the House debate the impeachment of President Clinton. It was the fourth night of U.S.-British bombings against Iraq. In the Speaker’s room, Amy had the chance to interview many of the House members as they stepped off the House floor for a break from the debate. They were ready to talk about impeachment and even about sex, but they seemed surprised when asked about Iraq, as if the issue had become irrelevant.
