I know from the Clinton scandal that a president can be impeached for perjury (sp?).... but can anyone list other things a president can be "evicted from office" for?
The only other one I can think of is treason...which, honestly, is a BROAD term.

Impeachable offenses In the United States, impeachment can occur both at the federal and state level. The Constitution defines impeachment at the federal level and limits impeachment to "The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States" who may only be impeached and removed for "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors".  Several commentators have suggested that Congress alone may decide for itself what constitutes an impeachable offense. In 1970, then-House Minority Leader Gerald R. Ford defined the criteria as he saw it: "An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history."

Oh you know, nothing as important as a bj or lying about a bj but stuff like manipulating intelligence to convince us to enter a war, war crimes like torture, spying w/o warrents, suspending Habeus Corpus, outing a CIA agent. Nothing big.
I'm not saying he is or isn't guilty of any of them but that is what I found on a couple of the states links.
