15. Yes, it would seem this is the plan
of sorts...I think Cheney may have been considering to drop out all along, but not necessarily under these circumstances.

Also, to further the argument that their going to cut and run on Iraq, there was an interesting article in the NYT:

U.S. Forces Look Into Leaving Iraqi Cities

http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/news/news-iraq-usa-troop...

---snip--

The question is, will this help them (the ditching of Cheney)? I'm not so sure, it may be too late to pull something like this off. They had too much invested in the emotional 9/11 attachment and the implications were coming directly from the Chimp. I don't know if this will neutralize the charges, especially with all the other stuff, no WMD's, 16 words etc...
