The national GOP is throwing everything they've got to the Sali campaign, apparently including Dick Cheney:

COEUR d'ALENE -- Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to arrive at the Coeur d'Alene Airport in Hayden next Thursday, possibly to lend a hand to U.S. Senate [sic] candidate Bill Sali....

It's not known why the vice president is coming to the Lake City. Several sources speculated that Cheney is coming to help Sali and that tickets to a fundraiser will be sold soon.

Sali's campaign manager, Jesseca Sali, said Bill Sali will be in Coeur d'Alene that day.

"He's going to be in North Idaho for a couple of days," Jesseca Sali said. "As to meeting with the vice president, you'd have to check with his staff."

For all the coyness, it seems pretty damned unlikely that a week and a half before the election Sali and Cheney just happen to be in the same remote Idaho town.

Maybe now the DCCC will take Idaho as seriously as the GOP does.

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.
