"Indeed, the rage of theorists to make constitutions a vehicle for the conveyance of their own crude, and visionary aphorisms of government, requires to be guarded against with the most unceasing vigilance."
     -- Joseph Story
     Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States
     Book III, § 1857.

My browsing took me to yet another site (deliberately unlinked) complaining about Congress's intervening in the Schiavo matter "for political gain." No sale: If it's the right thing to do, the members are entitled to that "political gain" from doing it; if not, it's not the "political gain" that impeaches it.
