Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

When Cheney Resigns -- PANIC!!

Bloggers are speculating that Cheney will resign soon. This scares me. Not that I'm any fan of Cheney. I think the blood clot will be used as an excuse but we all know that Scooter's quilty findings are the real reason.

Now here's the important question -- what piece of &%!t will be named to replace him? Whoever it is gets a big boost towards the next election -- McCain? If so, when was this deal cut? Back in the 2000 race? How about Gingrich? ARGH! You know it won't be "America"s Mayor Rudy Giuliani. What about Lieberman? What a boost to Joe's ego and Bush gets a GOP Senate in the deal!

The 25th Amendment (as if this matters to this administration!) says:
Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

That will be a debate to tape and treasure!
