Cheney

Yet again, there’s excitement in blogland about the possible indictment of Vice-President Cheney, and yet again it doesn’t seem based on much more than smoke, rumor and wishful schadenfreude.

My only contribution to this fest is this: Rather than ask, ‘Will Cheney resign if indicted,” far better to ask, “Will Cheney resign if named as an unindicted co-conspirator.”

PS. Do note, please, that the rumor as to who would replace Cheney is the person I picked as the leading candidate to replace him.

  1. The rumor-mongers are just silly. Even completely aside from the elephant-in-the-room of being a black woman, the Republican Party is not going to put into the VP slot someone who has never been elected *and* has no base of supporters within party factions.

    Doesn’t the Senate get to confirm any VP selected in this manner? If so, goven Condi’s role in various scandals, including membership in the White House Iraq Group, should make for an interesting confirmation hearing.
