Dick Cheney to Resign As Vice President Rumor Heats Up

It seems that since Dick Cheney was nominated and accepted the job of Vice President of the United States that a watch was put in place as to when the Veep would step aside. Four years plus later, he's still hanging tough, but now those rumors are heating up again.
Paul Bedard of U.S. News & World Report:
Rumor: Dick Cheney to Wave Good-Bye
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.
"If that should happen, there will undoubtedly be those who believe the whole thing was orchestrated – another brilliant Machiavellian move by the VP,” a White House insider reportedly told Bedard.
Sidenote: Would it really be Ms. Rice? That's what the buzz was according to the article.
A Bush associate reportedly whispered of the rumor, "Yes. This is not good." The rumor spread so fast that some Republicans by late morning were already drawing up reasons why Rice couldn't get the job or run for president in 2008.
"Isn't she pro-choice?" asked a key Senate Republican aide.
NewsMax states the obvious:
Some observers are whispering that the driving force behind the Rice-for-Cheney scenario is political pundit Dick Morris’ new book "Condi vs. Hillary: The Next Great Presidential Race.”
Bottom line - it could actually happen, but seems very unlikely unless Mr. Cheney would suffer from (God forbid) debilitating health problems.
This has to have the Dems worried, though.
And Wwhat if Rudi Giuliani replaced Mr. Cheney?
