Adirondack Group Considers War, Impeachment

Listen to this story
Over the last six years, President George Bush has drawn his most loyal support from voters and activists in rural America. A poll taken earlier this month by Ithaca-based Zogby International found that Bush's popularity in small towns has declined, thanks to the war in Iraq, the Dubai ports deal, and Hurricane Katrina.
But half of rural Americans still say Bush is going a good job. That's about a third higher than the rest of the country. On Saturday, a group of 50 activists met at the old courthouse in Elizabethtown. They hope to build a grassroots campaign aimed at changing Bush's image here in the North Country. As Brian Mann reports, they see the local effort as part of a national movement to impeach the President.
