I doubt they would. The impeachment of Clinton actually hurt Republicans. They've most likely learned their lesson.

My advice to them, take Congress, SHAPE UP, learn from your stupid mistakes, stop the good ole boy nonsense, start working for the people, and remember exactly why some of us our angry. We arent angry just at Obama and some Democrats, we are angry at atleast 75 percent of you for forgetting what your suppose to be there for and WHO YOUR BOSS IS! Its us! You will, eventually, be held accountable

Default The Dems are thinking, 'why wait'?

At the rate Obama is going it will be the Dems that try to impeach him.

Certainly there is a case for diminished mental capacity as evidenced by scores of video which document his lies, reversals and mental errors. If that is not enough, his response to critical events demonstrate a lag time consistent with a severe pathological state. At any rate he should be determined unfit for office today.

I'm certain the vote will be bi-partisan.

If this ever happened, Obama would only have himself to blame, by trying to be a centerist, even a little to the right of center, to appease to people (Repukes), who will impeach him for something that they were ok with when Bush was doing it. You heard it here first.

The standard for impeachment is the commision of a high crime or misdemeanor. These are usually an act of treason or sedition which could be a President sending military secrets to a hostile nation. An example sending a fully functionable Minuteman missile to Iran so they can copy it. Or staging a phony attack on the US to start a war. Other high crimes would be using Federal agents to commit crimes like burglery of political oppenents private offices, use of military snipers to kill political opponents, or the use of the IRS to do political fishing expeditions. The impeachment of Andrew Johnson set a president that the mere refusal to execute the laws of Congress and policy differences with Congress are not high crimes and not necessarily impeachable along with poor judgement, incompetence or just bad luck.
In the case of Clinton simple perjury is not a high crime just a simple crime,the Congress could have passed a resolution of censure or punished Clinton by cutting his post Presidential office staff or his pension.

It will be better for the republicans to have him in office. The longer that he is office means the better chance the GOP has in 2012. If they were to try to impeach him then (some) people would demonize the GOP as racists, etc.

That's something even David Copperfield couldn't pull off.

While I've stated skepticism with my decision, he's done nothing to be impeached. Dare we take a look back?
