"It is my firm belief that the Cheney-Bush team has committed offenses that are worse than those that drove Nixon, Vice President Spiro Agnew, and Attorney General John Mitchell from office after 1972," he wrote. "Indeed, as their repeated violations of the Constitution and federal statutes, as well as their repudiation of international law, come under increased consideration, I expect to see Cheney and Bush forced to resign their offices before 2008 is over."</p><p>"Aside from a growing list of impeachable offenses, the vice president has demonstrated his ignorance of foreign policy by attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting Syria."</p><p>Two months ago, McGovern, whose 1972 campaign office was the target of the Watergate breakin/burglary, called on Cheney to resign.</p></div></body>
