    Yes. Clinton was impeached and that is his legacy. So was Andrew Johnson. Nixon resigned to avoid impeachment.

    You don't get "convicted of impeachment" by the Senate.

    If you are not convicted by the Senate

    (see: Bill Clinton)

    and if you remain in office

    (unlike Nixon)

    then the label of "impeached" is pretty much forgotten.

    Officially. But Bill Clinton hasn’t exactly been hiding under the bed the last few decades.

    Yes. Once the House votes on Wednesday to impeach him, he has been impeached. It stays with him forever.

    The label remains, but as Clinton showed us, it isn't a really big deal.

    In this case everyone will know that the partisan masturbatory exercise was just a stunt.  LOL

    Not if it's a Democratic president and you're a Democratic voter. See: Clinton, Bill.
