Good pic Seekerof. I wish that pic link was postable. That's so her. The retro hair and outfits. Why do I feel like the President's advisor is a black Mary Tyler Moore? The Prez is of that generation that thinks Laura Petrie was a hottie. Now my brain's on a Cheney/Alan Brady tangent.

Whats the rumour about the conditions of the leaving? is he being dismissed or leaving for health reasons or something else?

Okay, you wanna know one of the BIG reasons Dick might be dropping out: Bush's anti-gay stance. Cheney is pro-civil unions mainly on account of his daughter being gay. This has caused big ripples in the White House as the Christian Coalition has been openly pushing Bush to back a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marrage and civil unions. As you can immagine Cheney is kinda pissed about this.
Honestly I would have thought that Powell would be the first to leave Bush's sinking ship but Cheney seems to have more brains in this case.

So it's Beantown Kerry versus The one-two Texas/NYC 9-11 punch. Let's face it, it's over...
Unless... the signs are pointing toward a real "Family Values" replacement...

US PRESIDENT George Bush is ready to pull off the biggest shock of this year’s election campaign by naming Rudy Giuliani as his running mate at the Republican convention in Manhattan in September.
Giuliani remains the most popular politician in the US and speculation is mounting that Bush will announce the former New York mayor as his vice presidential candidate as the country marks the third anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
The Republican party has already carried out canvassing of voters to assess how much support Giuliani has across the country and, according to reports, received high levels of public support.
The public has not forgotten Giuliani’s stoic leadership in the dark days after 9/11, when his words and actions became a beacon for the American people.
Analysts believe Bush, who lags behind Democratic frontrunner Senator John Kerry in opinion polls, would benefit from tapping into Giuliani’s popularity.
Dozens of polls since 2001 have shown Giuliani to be the most popular politician in the US, even though he has not held public office since Michael Bloomberg took over the post of mayor of New York in 2002.
WASHINGTON – There are whispers among high-level political advisers to President Bush suggesting the possibility of replacing Dick Cheney with former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani as the vice presidential running mate prior to the Republican National Convention in New York beginning Aug. 30.

I have heard that he will run and after re-election resign and be replaced by Condolezza Rice setting her up for the nomination in 2008 to go against Hillary.
