Republican Sees Bush Impeachment as an Option

Washington (AP) -- A Senate Republican accuses President Bush of angering Congress and the public by taking a go-it-alone approach to Iraq War policy.

Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel stopped short of calling for impeachment. But he said some other lawmakers consider impeachment an option. Hagel spoke on ABC's "This Week."

Hagel also discussed the possibility of impeachment in comments in Esquire magazine's April issue. The Republican states that this is "not a monarchy," adding that he hopes the President "understands that."

Hagel is considering a 2008 Presidential run.
