Cheney Resigns?

I do not like speculation and rumors, oh hell yes I do, especially when they are as juicy as this one. With Fitzgerald's investigation zeroing in on Cheney's office it was, I guess inevitable that this would bubble up:

From US News & World Report:

White House Watch: Cheney resignation rumors fly

parked by today's Washington Post story that suggests Vice President Cheney's office is involved in the Plame-CIA spy link investigation, government officials and advisers passed around rumors that the vice president might step aside and that President Bush would elevate Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

"It's certainly an interesting but I still think highly doubtful scenario," said a Bush insider. "And if that should happen," added the official, "there will undoubtedly be those who believe the whole thing was orchestrated – another brilliant Machiavellian move by the VP."

Said another Bush associate of the rumor, "Yes. This is not good." The rumor spread so fast that some Republicans by late morning were already drawing up reasons why Rice couldn't get the job or run for president in 2008.

I agree that giving a big one finger wave good-bye to "Big Time" is premature... a man can dream can't he?

One may question why Republicans would be formulating reasons as to why Condi couldn't grab the reigns. Besides latent and overt rascism, the question amongst the fundie zombies is:

"Isn't she pro-choice?" asked a key Senate Republican aide.

Grab a cold one, sit back, and let the chips fall where they may. The very least we can say is this is going to be one helluva ride.
