For the first time since 1868, an American President is facing impeachment by the House of Representatives.
The House is expected to vote within hours to support at least one of the four articles of impeachment passed last week by the Judiciary Committee.
As the air strikes continue against the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq, Clinton faces the most important vote of his political career. Impeachment will mean that the president will be sent for trial in the Senate. A two-thirds vote there can remove Clinton from office.
