A disappearing VP?

For weeks, I have had this feeling that Vice-President Dick Cheney will not be on the 2004 ticket. That seems especially true if Democrats come up with a compelling one-two lineup for president and vice-president, some combination of John Kerry, John Edwards and Gen. Wesley Clark.

With all his Halliburton woes, Cheney could become a drag on the ticket.

Cheney could bow out gracefully, citing a health issue, and Bush could tap Secretary of State Colin Powell for veep. Seattle Times op-ed columnist Collin Levey offered another intriguing possibility, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Of course, it is too early for any of this to transpire. But over time, a change in the second spot on the ticket may begin to make sense.
