Rice Trumps Cheney

Sparked by today's Washington Post story that suggests Vice President Cheney's office is involved in the Plame-CIA spy link investigation, government officials and advisers passed around rumors that the vice president might step aside and that President Bush would elevate Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

I can deal with the weather rebalancing itself all over the world. But the term when Hell freezes over may happen in this case. Not saying that I don't like LeezaRice. She has a great coming of age story. But if Cheney "the puppet master" steps down--and I totally doubt that--then the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and America would really have to come to terms with racism in this clever culture. Unfortunately, I feel bad for LeezaRice, who has her plate full with ministering to the world... Ministering to America is something entirely different.

What do you think? You think Cheney would step down over this? Should we care? Don't we have a lot of other crap like finding cheap Christmas gifts to concern ourselves about?
