There’s a rumor going around Washington that VP Dick Cheney will resign from office sometime next year because of health problems. As you know, Cheney has a history of heart ailments and some members of congress have heard that DC will step down. It’s no secret there is no chance that Cheney is interested in running for President in 2008. If he does step down, President Bush will be able to appoint someone as his VP (the same as President Ford did when Spiro Agnew resigned).
Who will Bush appoint? The rumors inside the Beltway say Condoleeza Rice. It’s no secret that Condi has a special place in George W’s heart. She’s risen from National Security Advisor to Secretary of State, and people in the know believe she’ll be appointed VP.
So what does that mean for 2008? Could it be that both parties will have women on the ticket for the November election? Hillary Clinton and Condi Rice? Wow.
