New York SunreviewCheney
My own guess - okay, hope - is that Mr. Cheney has taken a look at the Republican presidential field and sees an opening.
The Washington Post's polling expert, Richard Morin, noted that at 18% approval, Vice President Cheney was less popular than Michael Jackson after he was tried for child abuse and O.J. Simpson after he was tried for murder.... Some of this may be blamed on a hostile press, and Mr. Hayes also reports on a dynamic within the Bush administration in which presidential aides sought to keep Mr. Cheney's profile low so that he didn't outshine the president.25 percentChristopher Orr
