7. But, just curious....
IF Cheney goes down...hell, he shoulda went down a long time ago...but IF he does...then does that give the R's the chance to appoint a successor? Someone who could run for Prez. next time around? I don't know...I am asking seriously...Did Nixon appoint Ford?? before he went down...god, I'm getting old, can't remember..

8. yes, for them it could be a silver lining of sorts, esp if they appoint
someone with an appeal -- like Giuliani or McCain (who probably does not want it).

9. The President appoints and the Senate confirms
So, yeah they could give someone a real assist in being President. Any quesses who they'll pick? It's complicated. McCain may be too independent for them and would anger the base, (But McCain's head might explode if not picked.) Frist has ethics issues. Allen is from VA and they have a Democratic Governor (and a new Democrat is at least tied for the November election. Brownback ? Jeb Bush - appointed by brother -I don't think so. Romney - it would get him out of Massachusetts? Guilliani - would have 3 years to demonstrate arrogant personality>

11. ??
I have no serious idea, other than, McCain would not be it...Guiliani???? naw...don't think so...I think Frist is dust blowing in the wind, at this point...I don't know much about Romney, Brownbeck, or Allen, other than I have heard others speculate that Allen might be thinking of running....I dunno...Jeb might be the one, and* can appoint anyone he chooses...does anyone think this Senate, would NOT approve Jeb????Dems are the minority right? How could they block him? It would be the perfect set up, and I don't think there are any rules about appointing brothers??...It might be political suicide for him, in 2008, if he did want to run on his own, or he could be welcomed with open arms...and how better to carry on the bs?...I keep thinking that bush,inc., is not going to give up the power they have now, w/o a fight..
What gets me about this whole Plamegate thing is, it's so convoluted, and goes in so many circles, with so many people obviously involved, that I begin to wonder sometimes, if it wasn't planned that way...how better to get away with something, than to make it impossible to point the finger at one person, as being ultimately responsible..and at the same time, with all of those people testifying, some of them more than once, when you are not telling the truth, it's damned hard to remember what you said the first time...what has Fitz stumbled upon? What all is involved? I don't think we have a clue...I just hope we can trust Fitz to have OUR best interests at heart...or at least what's best for this country..and I hope he gets them ALL...every blasted one of them..
