Appearently, the Republican frontrunning candidate for Congressional District 7, Rick O'Donnell, will have a fundraiser, where Dick Cheney made an appearance.  Considering how much trouble Cheney MIGHT be in, it may not have been the greatest move on O'Donnell's part. Either Perlmutter or Lamm could show that picture of him with Dick if Dick gets indicted.  And it could hurt him.  God willing.  If we're lucky, it would make an impact in this race.  Seeing as it is important.  

Here is an excerpt thread from Colorado Pols.

Bad Timing for O'Donnell Part Deux; Cheney in Trouble
As we wrote yesterday, Republican Rick O'Donnell's fundraiser with Vice President Dick Cheney might have come at an inopportune moment with the Veep facing trouble in the CIA leak probe. Well, it turns out that trouble is more than we would have guessed, because it sounds like Cheney himself may have been the source of the leak. From the Associated Press:

The White House on Tuesday sidestepped questions about whether Vice President Dick Cheney passed on to his top aide the identity of a CIA officer central to a federal grand jury probe. Notes in the hands of a federal prosecutor suggest that Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, first heard of the CIA officer from Cheney himself, The New York Times reported in Tuesday's editions.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    but wasn't Cheney here yesterday?  I thought I that and assumed it when I saw many police cars in and around Mile High Stadium.  Traffic from I-25 to onto Park Ave. was diverted.
