"Bush Shuffle" Continues

In a week that saw White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan resign and Presidential advisor Karl Rove move away from a policy role, it appears that the biggest, and most surprising shakeup is Vice President Dick Cheney's bid to become a candidate for the next opening on the Supreme Court.

Cheney's none-too-subtle bid * mirrors that of sitting Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginburg.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice * is also thought to be angling for a SCOTUS nomination should a fourth Justice retire during the Bush Presidency.

Update: Dan says, "Hu's On First?"

Obviously, they're meditating. People underestimate the deeply spiritual side of this administration.

Man - the timing is great! I'd rather have him go for it than most of the things being proposed in Washington, right now!
I'd sure rather have him on the Supreme Court and make the Dims so bloody furious, than have him resign from being VEEP so the stupid part of the GOP could put someone in as VEEP so they'd have a better chance becoming the next Prexy.
I could live with Cheney on the USSC.
