During the last summer I read all four volumes of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" with my 12-year-old sister, Julie. In this story there is a selfish, self-centered old man named Saruman. He is a powerful man, thought to be good and wise. His talent was in his voice that he used to "sway the weak-minded." He could appear wise and humble while he lied and deceived.

When he was finally found out, he could still use his voice to persuade the weak-minded to see him as the victim and to put the blame on others. Bill Clinton is very much like Saruman, and the scariest thing to me is that 60 percent of Americans are so weak-minded that they can't see through him.He lied to us. He lied under oath. He should be impeached. My sister and I no longer recognize him as our president because he no longer represents us. We have already impeached him.
