U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich defended his call to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney for invading Iraq, a move his 10th Congressional District opponents say is unnecessary.

“History will impeach Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush for this wrong-headed mistake they’ve made. We’ve got other issues we have to focus on,” including jobs and health care, said Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman, during an hour-long debate with all five candidates taped Monday at Time Warner Cable.

The debate, moderated by Bob Conklin, host of “In the Spotlight,” will be aired several times on Time Warner beginning at 8 p.m. Wednesday on Channel 15 in Cleveland, Channel 23 in Akron and Channel 22 elsewhere.

Political observers regard Cimperman as having the best chance of unseating the sixth-term congressman, but most of the barbs came from Barbara Ferris, who is in her third run for the seat.
