Good observation. Bush's job rating is only 34%, according to the latest poll, but Cheney sits at 18%, which is absolutely horrible. I believe that the GOP is going to want to try a fresh start, but in order to do that, they are going to need to create a candidate who will have excellent name recognition in 2008. Replacing Cheney, then integrating his replacement into the everyday affairs of the executive branch, would be an excellent strategy. Could a strategy like this result in both, the first black president, and the first woman president. Now that would be something to speculate over, but it is a distinct possibility. While the Democrats accuse Republicans of trying to take away the rights of blacks, they themselves have a history of using race to manipulate. Rice as a viable candidate, as well as a replacement for Cheney, might be a very good strategy.Blue Collar Joe said:I don't think George will go Dickless. :lol:
However, it would also be a good opportunity for the reps to place the person they have in office that they want to run for Pres next in second seat. That may have something to do with the story.
EDIT: Looks like Pacridge beat me to playing the Rice card - Pardon the pun.
