See Dick. See Dick Run.
Could our mysterious VP, the main just an electrically charged heartbeat away from the Presidency, be on the verge of announcing his candidacy for the office himself? Apparently, the Draft Cheney Movement is growing.
What about the other presumed front runners? McCain, Giuliani, or Rice? The hardcore conservatives, the real true believers in what W's been doing to us, suspect them each (including Rice!) of being too liberal to continue the revolution. So, who better to carry on the W legacy than the architect of the whole damn thing? So, Draft Cheney it is.
First, of course, he has to get over the whole "I pledged not to run" stuff. Easy enough. He pledged that he wasn't a candidate for VP when he took charge of the effort to find a running mate for W back in 2000. He got over that quickly enough.
I for one think this is great news (assuming Dick lives long enough for it to happen). I'm sure Democrats everywhere are thinking that it's a slam dunk to win against that nasty old f***. Hell, the Dem's could probably bring back Dukakis and win against Cheney. All it would take is a little organization; is that too much to ask?
