George W. Bush - Articles of Impeachment

Yesterday, Rep. Dennis Kucinich presented to the House Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush. The articles, totaling 35, were presented largely uninterrupted. You can watch the beginning of his address here (with plenty of other videos to choose from at the end of it):

The question that I wish to pose is the following: Is it too little too late?

I would argue that justice is justice, no matter when served. This sends a positive message to both the people of the United States of America and the citizens of the world that we wish to enact change. We are ready for change. Furthermore, impeachment of the President would prevent him from enacting any kind of scenario wherein he could impose martial law and procure and indefinite termination of his stay in office, in violation of the two consecutive terms limit to the office of the Presidency.

On the other hand, one might argue that this is nothing more than a charade, and political theater. Being so close to Bush's departure from office, it will not truly hasten the process of regime change, but rather is a half-hearted attempt at appeasing and pandering to the masses who feel long-overdue for this kind of action.

What do you think? I am curious to hear how other people feel about this.
