Rumors Persist, Will Cheney Still Be On The Ticket?
Interesting Op-Ed in today's USAToday calling on Cheney to step down and encouraging Bush to choose McCain as a running mate. There have been rumors flying around DC for the last two years that Cheney will step down (due to health reasons) and allow Bush to choose another VP. "Rudy" or McCain are tossed around. I seriously doubt that Bush would jettison Cheney and if he did I think it would be a sign he thought he was in deep trouble. Of course if the torture memo issue rises to high, or Iraq continues to weigh Bush down in the polls, he could always blame and dump Dick. But from the Elephant's point of view it's not likely.
