Cheney's Chief of Staff Indicted, Resigns

Yes, I know, blogging has been non-existent of late. I've spent a lot of time in the air and have spent the remainder in abject laziness. My apologies to whomever may read this blog on a regular basis.

But the above mentioned story brings me out of my fortress of solitude, or bat cave, depending upon one's preference of comic book analogies. Several weeks ago, there was a rumor that VP Cheney would resign prior to the end of President Bush's final term and Condoleeza Rice would be nominated as Cheney's successor thus setting her up for a run for the big chair in '08.

I find this scenario fascinating and, while this indictment may not specifically point to such an outcome, it could well lead to it. It's early, and a presidential nomination is a long process that hs yet to even begin, but Rice may well be a candidate that I could enthusiastically support. A long shot? Sure. Then again, so was George W. Bush in October of 1997.
