    What the current line-up of Republican wanna-be's should tell you, is that the powers-that-be in the Republican Party do not care to contest the Presidency in 2008.

    If they change their minds about that, I expect Cheney to get the boot, to be replaced by the Annoited One, whoever that may turn out to be (Hagel?).

    But, as things stand now, I think the Republicans (by which, I mean the core group of active seekers after power) do not want a Republican President in 2008.

    The men, who are running, are people, who hope that they can hijack the Republican brand, apparently unaware of the risks of doing so.

    But, the more curious thing is the apparent complete unwillingness of genuinely conservative Republicans, popular with the base, to seek the Presidency.
